How to prepare your organization for Expert Automation & Augmentation System disruption

Session abstract
As expert automation and augmentation systems become more prevalent, accountants are taking note.  At KPMG LLP, we believe the key to expert automation and augmentation systems success is in not only harnessing organizational data and knowledge, but also empowering our users to become more successful.  We provide 10 design patterns that help us build systems that augment decision-making for our specialists.  These patterns also help us build systems that capture the data exhaust that could eventually lead to expert automation.  However, we do this in a way that is informed by and led by our specialists themselves, who not only make these decisions, but understand the independence of thought required to make them in a heavily regulated industry.
