    Writing essays, crunching numbers, even analysing basic strategy ideas… artificial intelligence can do so much these days. Does that mean accountancy jobs are at risk?

Imtiaz Ahmad FCCA speaks from his years of experience about how different technologies have changed accounting, and the benefits of AI in his own practice. ACCA UK’s Head of Technology Alistair Brisbourne, PhD talks us through ACCA’s ‘AI In The Finance Profession’ report, including surveys on the concerns of current ACCA students and members, and describes the ways in which he believes AI is going to affect the roles of accountants within organisations in years to come.
