This session focuses on what CPAs need to know about artificial intelligence, starting with identifying what exactly artificial intelligence is, what it isn’t, and its implications for CPAs. Examples will be provided to identify and illustrate places in which AI is already being used to help automate and streamline accounting processes. Additionally, projections and forward-looking ideas will be presented for attendees to consider as AI platforms and tools become more mainstream, including how to leverage this adoption for increased revenue generation.
