AI in audit: the good, the bad and the ugly

Listen now
The words 'ICAEW INSIGHTS In Focus' and the ICAEW logo on a two-tone blue background

In this Insights In Focus episode, we discuss the use of artificial intelligence in audit.

Depending on who you talk to, generative AI is either going to revolutionise the way auditors work or replace certain roles in the sector entirely. The truth probably lies somewhere in between. So, how are auditors beginning to use AI? And how can practices sift marketing fact from fiction and navigate the risks introduced by using AI tools?

To answer those questions, Philippa Lamb is joined by Konrad Bukowski-Kruszyna, Audit Data Analytics Director at RSM UK; Fay Bordbar, Global Digital Skills Lead at Mazars; and Oliver Nelson-Smith, Tech Policy Manager at ICAEW
