ICAEW event: Technology, ethics and the future of accountancy jobs

Technology, ethics and the future of accountancy jobs

ICAEW, through its partner ineo, would like to invite you to this Free of Charge event.

Technologies such as artificial intelligence present many exciting opportunities but are also generating increasing concerns. They are raising many new ethical questions about privacy, bias, and lack of transparency, for example. There are also wide-spread concerns about the future of jobs, and how technologies such as AI could make many people redundant. As accountants look increasingly to exploit AI and other advanced technologies, how can we manage these concerns and maximise the benefits? Is the current accounting approach to ethics still fit for purpose? How do we think about accountability for decisions, and the nature of professional judgement, when machines are making the decisions? And how will AI change the jobs of accountants in practice? This seminar and panel discussion will outline some of the key emerging ethical issues, consider the changing roles and skills of accountants, as well as reflect on some of the longer-term challenges for the profession.
