Course Description

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are transforming the accounting world. These emerging technologies will increase the value of the services you provide to your clients by reducing or eliminating the redundant, manual, transactional work required to record data, prepare PO, update client information, assurance, or prepare tax returns.

AI is already being used in mainstream businesses and its use is expected to grow exponentially in the future. Many professionals are already turning to automation to free up time to replace the squeeze on traditional fee earning potential with value-added services. They are looking for marginal gains across the whole lifecycle of their service portfolio. 

But the big question is that how are you preparing to use assisted intelligence, augmented intelligence, or autonomous intelligence in your firm? 

Are you prepared for the transformation, the risks, and the benefits attached to it? 

Do you understand the potential and future of AI, ML, and RPA?

It's easy to get robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI) mixed up because we are already using them interchangeably but are not aware. 

This CPE/CPD webinar on Information Technology will help you identify and understand the difference between these tools to help you identify the best opportunities for you and your business so that you can make the most of your next technology investment.
