Join the East Alabama Chapter on Thursday, September 5th for a 4-hour CPE on artificial intelligence. With buzzwords like “AI,” “blockchain,” “data analytics” constantly circulating around the accounting industry right now, it can be hard to be sure what the future will look like and what changes it will bring. But what is certain is that disruptive technology creates change, and the ability to navigate through such change will determine how firms, companies and individual CPAs will position themselves in the inevitable new world. The day will include a discussion of artificial, human, and augmented intelligence (who wins the battle of “man versus machine?”). We will discuss developing technologies that are likely to have tangible impact to both public and industry professionals. We will discuss the organizational culture and governance structure that is needed to successfully navigate the changes brought with new technology. And finally we will talk practically about implementation of new technology within an organization, and how to anticipate and manage the pain points along the way.
