The impact of artificial intelligence on professional workers is the focus of an event at the University this week (26 September).
Professor Paolo Quattrone will be among the number of experts to speak at the AuditFutures salon event, Professionalism and AI.
The thought-provoking session aims to inspire debate around the changing role of professions in a world of artificial intelligence.
Speakers will discuss the opportunities and challenges it offers and threats this may bring for the future.
Professor Quattrone is Chair of Accounting, Governance and Social Innovation at the University’s Business School and is coordinating the efforts to develop the Futures Institute in his role as Dean of Special Projects for the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
At the event, Professor Quattrone will be joined by a range of experts, including the CEO and co-founder of Airts – a company that creates AI – Andrew Bone, PwC Data Analytics Director Stephen Mills and Dr Ewa Luger, a Chancellor’s Fellow at the University and a consultant researcher at Microsoft Research.
This event has been organised by AuditFutures, an organisation that proactively seeks to envision opportunities and expectations of the future professional in the field of audit and accounting.
