AI Advances Can Lead to Ethical Dilemmas in Accounting and Finance

 

In an era where technology’s evolution outpaces its regulation, AI advances can lead to ethical dilemmas in accounting and finance. The integration of artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies into these sectors not only heralds a new dawn of efficiency and transparency but also introduces a myriad of ethical dilemmas, particularly concerning data privacy, security, and financial reporting integrity.

The essence of these challenges lies not in the technologies themselves but in their application, underscoring the imperative for professionals in the field to adopt a philosophy of continuous learning. This approach is vital for navigating the complex landscape that these innovations create, where the only constant is change itself. To remain relevant and ethical in their practices, accountants and financial managers must be technology agnostic, embracing the tools that best serve their purposes without allegiance to any single platform.The skillset required in this new age goes beyond mere technical know-how; it demands a fundamental understanding of how these technologies impact financial ethics and reporting.

“So in other words, focusing on being technology agnostic and having the mindset of being a lifelong learner,” Mfon Akpan, Ph.D., CGMA, an Accounting & Financial Management Researcher for Methodist University advises, highlighting the need to continuously update skills and knowledge to ethically manage the complexities of modern finance.
