• Enabling trust in an AI-enhanced world

    The first of the AI Monitor series examines the concept of trust.

    Examining briefly the importance of trust to the accountancy profession, the paper proceeds to explore the impact that AI can have on the maintenance of trust and how the accountancy profession will have to adjust to the new reality. 

    The paper looks at AI’s potential impact on trust establishing the issue as a socio-technical challenge. Facing this challenge requires appropriate upskilling, collaboration, and governance. It also suggests that the accountancy profession needs to prioritise outcomes over outputs, providing an example of the use of machine learning in FP&A (financial planning and analysis).

    Laying the foundation for trusted AI use requires, suggests AI Monitor, finance professionals to sign off on the adequacy of controls and oversight of AI systems.
