The world is abuzz about dozens of emerging technologies like artificial general intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain-based ledgers, but many of these technologies won’t have a meaningful impact your work for ten or more years, and some, like Google Glass, have fallen off the radar entirely.  On the other hand, technologies like automated statement/document retrieval, automated data import and reporting, and electronic signatures are often not utilized.  This session will mix a discussion of emerging technologies and will provide some insight into the kinds of work automation technologies available now and in the future in accounting and bookkeeping.
