This webinar will take a look at how artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the audit process. Our panel of financial reporting veterans will address how accounting and auditing professionals can use current technology to increase the accuracy of financial statement examinations and expedite the process.


AI and the latest technology can increase efficiency and reduce costs. AI can assist auditors in analyzing and evaluating mass quantities of data quickly and in real time. It can help document review processes, generate planning documents, and even predict future audit risks and trends.

The benefits are remarkable, but accountants, auditors, and businesses need to thoroughly evaluate and manage the relative risks associated with the latest technology. AI is subject to hallucinations. Its parameters must be appropriately defined and monitored. Ensuring the data used is secured properly is a paramount concern. Implementing and modifying current accounting and auditing processes is a significant undertaking. However, the explosive growth of these technologies has made it a necessity. Financial professionals must thoroughly grasp best practices for utilizing AI and current technology when preparing and examining financial statements.

Listen as our panel of accounting and auditing technology experts reviews the pros and cons of using AI in preparing and assessing the validity of financial statements.
