If we talk about Automation Anywhere, It is more script-based development, while UIPath has workflow and visual process designers. If you are good programming knowledge then Automation Anywhere is best for you to know and work. In the case of Uipath, it doesn’t require more programming so if you have good logic and little bit knowledge about programming then you can use UiPath.
