ON DEMANDIntroduction to machine learning for CPAs 1.5 Hours | Price: $75.00 CAD
Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) that our society is interacting with frequently and, in many cases, unknowingly.
Our awareness of machine learning is often obscured by other more dramatic branches of AI, including strong AI (robots with human intelligence), which we often see in television and film, such as HAL 900 in Stanely Kubrick’s class film 2001 A Space Oddessy.
It is machine learning that is significantly impacting our personal and professional lives. From relatively harmless examples such as our streaming services recommending a new film to high stakes decisions involving our social networks, machine learning is moving to the front and center of how we make decisions.
As CPAs, we are also interacting and using machine learning applications in our professional services include assurance, tax and controllership roles. CPAs must understand what machine learning is and the increasing role it will play in the services we provide. This on-demand course will take us through an introductory knowledge of machine learning and the implications of machine learning for the profession.
