On the afternoon of March 24th, Associate Professor Cao Shun of Georgia State University was invited by the School of Accounting to give a lecture titled How to Talk When a Machine is Listening? Corporate Disclosure in the Age of AI.
The lecture centered on the two topics of artificial intelligence and big data. Cao pointed out that machines will take over repetitious work in the near future, and certified personnel is faced with both opportunities and challenges in this age of intelligence.
Cao discussed two questions in the paper How to Talk When a Machine is Listening? Corporate Disclosure in the Age of AI: first, how could financial personnel make financial statements in the context of artificial intelligence and big data? second, how financial personnel proceed with financial statements? He concluded that only those soft information that cannot be captured by machines will not be replaced by machines. Therefore, as irreplaceable financial personnel, one should pay more attention to theoretical research and build theoretical basis of what you have learned.
Cao Shun graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and now works at the School of Business of Georgia State University as an associate professor. In recent years, he has begun to integrate big data analysis into the research of corporate information disclosure. Up to now, he has published many papers in top journals such as Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Accounting Research, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, The Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Research, and IEEE Computer. Additionally, he has been invited to introduce his research results in some world-renowned universities like Stanford University, Cornell University, New York University, University of Virginia, University of Minnesota and Pennsylvania State University.
