Workforce Impact

The automation potential of generative AI may raise concerns about job displacement in the finance office. Organizations should proactively address these concerns by re-skilling and upskilling employees to work alongside generative AI systems, focusing on tasks that require human judgment, creativity, and critical thinking.

Ethical AI prioritizes the well-being and interests of humans. AI systems should be designed to enhance human lives, promote safety, and respect human autonomy. This means considering the potential social, economic, and psychological impacts of AI deployments and involving diverse stakeholders in the decision-making processes.

To get the most out of an AI-implementation, organizations should help their teams to:

  • Augment and upskill employees
  • Transition to data analytics and decision-making
  • Transition to application and systems management
  • Focus on tasks requiring human judgment

Practical Uses for AI in Finance

With the right governance, AI-enhanced technology is readily available and deployable and could make dramatic improvements for accounting workflows.

It may be only a few years before a young employee reacts with shock upon hearing the accounting close was once a monthly event — weren’t the books always up to date? And soon self-learning software agents will run many processes on their own. A forecasting system, for instance, could tell ERP to raise target inventory levels immediately when it spies a chance to capture market share. The use cases for AI in finance are many, and forward-thinking enterprises that want to remain leaders will be investing in AI-based projects to gain advantages and remain relevant.
