Course description

Harnessing Artificial Intelligence

You will begin by understanding how Artificial Intelligence has developed and the influence Big Data has had on its evolution. You will then explore how AI is currently securing commercial advantage in real-life situations. Finally, you will be presented with the latest research and development as part of a debate about the potential opportunities and threats that AI creates for accountants, for businesses and for society as a whole.

Suitability - Who should attend?

No prior knowledge of Artificial Intelligence or Big Data is required. The course explores the impact of AI on business in general and the accountancy profession in particular, and is therefore ideal for anyone working in accountancy or finance, as well as business leaders.
