Beware the “Artificial CPA”? Artificial Intelligence, Ethics and You

How will Artificial Intelligence transform the accounting industry, your organization and your career? Is an “Artificial CPA” coming to a firm near you? Will Blockchain “block” your career? And what are the ethical implications for you, your colleagues and your clients? Are you ready for the threats and opportunities just over the horizon – and for years to come?

Some see AI becoming as pervasive and transformational in the 21st Century as electricity was in the 20th. Others predict that AI will do to accounting what the Internet did to the media industry. This course focuses on the sweeping impact of Artificial Intelligence on our lives — and the steps we might take, ethically and professionally, to prepare for it.

Greg Conderacci, who teaches this course, is no Luddite. He uses much of the same technology you do. And, as author of Getting UP! Supercharging Your Energy, he has researched and written extensively about its impact. A BLI Senior Fellow, consultant, and faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, he is a sought-after adviser for personal and corporate change.
