How to Prepare for a Robot-Automated and AI-Enhanced Future in Accounting

June 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CDT



A recent MIT-Boston Consulting study of over 3,000 companies found that 80% of them believed AI (artificial intelligence) would give them a competitive advantage.

What’s more, we are already seeing the use of AI and RPA (robotic process automation) creeping into the business world, and more specifically into various accounting functions.

This is one change that will radically impact many white-collar jobs. And that change will happen in the next few years, not ten or twenty years from now.
