Warning, AI is Watching!
Auditing, financial reviews and fraud investigations involve the gathering, generation, and analysis of information. Modern information technologies, like data mining algorithms and artificial intelligence driven data analytics, will increasingly become necessary tools for auditors, fraud examiners, as well as other financial personnel. In this session we will discuss some of the ethical concerns that arise in the use of such information technologies as integral pieces in successful use of the data.
