A recent MIT-Boston Consulting study of over 3,000 companies found that 80% believed AI (artificial intelligence) would give them a competitive advantage. What’s more, we are seeing the use of AI and RPA (robotic process automation) creeping into the business world, and more specifically into various accounting functions.

  • Define Artificial Intelligence (AI) and RPA (Robotic Process Automation), as they relate to accounting
  • Identify situations where you can use AI and RPA in your organization
  • Plan for future applications of AI and RPA
  • Identify new skills needed to succeed in accounting in the future

You will look at how these functions are being used in accounting today and how they might be used in the future. You will also learn about skills that will be in demand with relation to the use of these new technologies in accounting, as well as some recommendations on how attendees can acquire those skills.
