Artificial intelligence presents an opportunity for finance professionals to learn new skills to adapt for the future of their role. There is a lot of fear surrounding the idea that new technologies will eventually take over many jobs and human interaction will no longer be needed. Instead of focusing on these fears, accountants must see this as a chance to advance their own skills in their role. In the 1970s, bank tellers were afraid of machines eliminating their jobs, but instead their position started demanding advanced business, relationship management, and technology skills instead of just mathematical skills. The challenge today is that technology is evolving much faster than it did in the 1970s.
