MEDIA ADVISORY - Will machines take over your finance department?

Morneau Shepell's CIO, Michael Lin, to present at the FEI Canada conference in Whistler on June 16

VANCOUVER, June 12, 2017 /CNW/ - New developments in artificial intelligence (AI) are beginning to change the way businesses operate. As more companies strive toward increased productivity, some departments, such as the finance function of an organization, are implementing artificial intelligence into the routine aspects of their work. As part of a panel, Michael Lin, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Morneau Shepell, will discuss if this evolution makes sense in the long term for organizations and society as a whole.

The panel discussion "Artificial Intelligence: Will machines take over Finance?" will occur on Friday, June 16, 2017 at the FEI Canada conference "Reaching for the Peak" in Whistler, British Columbia.

Morneau Shepell invites members of the media to attend the panel. Michael Lin will be available for interviews.
