Event Overview:

Artificial intelligence (AI) has arrived and organisations are increasingly incorporating the advances AI brings into operations. With AI being dependent on big data and algorithms, how prepared is your internal audit team to provide assurance over AI and capitalise on its efficiencies in appropriate audit plans and activities?

AI is fast becoming the disruptive technology in this big data age. Internal auditors must gear up and help their organisations get it right from the start by understanding the basics of AI, the roles that they should play and the risks and opportunities of AI.

You will learn from leading experts in the field including Mr Vincent Cheang, Managing Director and Director of Internal Audit from GIC and Mr Melvin Yang, Technology Specialist from Handshakes.
