You don't need to be a data scientist to use AI in internal audit
16 June, 11:15-11:55 BST
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are blazing their way through the audit space. While regulators and some firms are still warming up to the idea, many of their peers are becoming more efficient, sustainable, and effective through technology. Specifically, AI and machine learning are giving auditing firms the ability to automate everyday tasks, and giving them time to focus on building client relationships, planning ahead, and taking deep dives into areas of concern.
But, while the benefits of AI-powered internal audits mount, many firms, and the auditors themselves, are still skeptical. They fear that these new technologies will require a depth of knowledge in data science and analytics that they simply don't have. Fortunately, as these technologies have developed, they have become much more accessible, user-friendly, and useful to the everyday user. All that is to say, you don't have to be a data scientist to use AI in internal audit.
This session will help you understand how to embrace technology, create an environment for change, and the value you can put back into your business using AI.
