Event: how AI will impact your working life

Younger Members London is hosting an event in association with EY on 24 February to set out how you can use artificial intelligence to your advantage in a practical way.

February 2020

In the coming decades, intelligent systems will take over more and more decision-making tasks from humans. Make sure you are prepared for how AI will impact your career.

At this event, hear how AI will affect the future of accountancy and get a better idea of what your job will look like in 10 years’ time.

Harvey Lewis, Associate Partner and Chief Data Scientist at EY, and Jan Chan, Associate Partner and UK&I TAS Chief Innovation Officer at EY, will be considering the following questions:

  • What is the long-term vision for AI and accountancy?
  • How can machine and human learning work together?
  • What are the current real-world applications of AI in the profession?

Hosted by Younger Members London (YML) at EY’s office at 25 Churchill Place, London, E14 5EY, join with your local peers for an opportunity to network and learn about the changing digital world. The presentations will be followed with canapes and refreshments.

As Harvey says: “The world is very messy and AI doesn’t operate well in a messy world. To make data valuable, you need to understand its features and engineer it in such a way that you can use it, practically.

Harvey is a real-life rocket scientist and data scientist with over 25 years of experience in artificial intelligence, blockchain and other disruptive technologies. He is a strategist, innovator and thought leader with practical and in-depth knowledge of applying AI and machine learning for clients in the public, private and charity sectors. He is currently pioneering the use of AI in EY’s tax business.

Harvey will be joined at the event by Jan Chan, Associate Partner and UK&I TAS Chief Innovation Officer, EY. At EY, Jan leads a team of Data Scientists to provide clients with a variety of solutions to operate in a digital world. He specialises in data and analytics and has played a lead role in creating a truly joined up firm wide approach to the types of technology and capability EY needs for the coming years ahead.
