About this session

While the possibility for artificial intelligence (AI) to influence and potentially transform accounting as we know it is exciting, how much of the current hype can be backed with tangible evidence or products?

How many accountants and bookkeeping professionals are actually using AI tools on a daily basis? What areas are they focussed on? And how will this new technology influence the next generation of accounting technology?

Taking a practical focus on what's possible now, what's coming soon and what may be realistic in future, this webinar will examine the present and future of AI accounting in the company of three industry experts.

What you’ll learn:

  • How AI is used in accounting software today, including data entry, categorisation and identifying discrepancies.
  • The current limitations of AI tools
  • How AI could assist accountants and bookkeepers with tasks such as budgeting, forecasting, tax preparation, accounts production and other compliance tasks.
  • How to factor in security considerations when using AI to manage sensitive data
  • What are the ethical implications of relying on AI assistance are
  • Where AI could take the accounting profession in the future
