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.
In this practical webinar, you will learn the definition of AI and RPA, with particular reference to how they apply to accounting. 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.
