How Automation and AI is Enhancing Management Accountants (LIVESTREAM) (LIAA15/22)

Event Description

Headlines abound saying that Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and artificial intelligence (AI) will eliminate the need for accountants. In reality, RPA and AI provide an excellent opportunity for accountants to automate more routine procedures and focus on delivering more value-added insights to help improve an organization’s performance or risk mitigation. Conversely, the use of AI can also have some adverse results if not managed properly. Accountants must be aware of these risks and work to ensure that the proper controls are in place to manage an organization’s operational and financial risks associated with automation and AI. Learn more about these technologies and their implications to the skills and knowledge needed to be an effective management accountant.
