XBRL and AI - a match made in heaven? Not quite. However, there are best practices you can put in place to make the marriage go smoothly. We will delve into these proven methodologies in an upcoming webinar.
XBRL is now the standard for financial reporting. Where reports used to be filed as PDF documents or Excel sheets, the XBRL standard has provided regulators with machine readable data. This has opened up a realm of possibility, as data can now be more easily processed and benchmarked. Many regulators are looking to AI to gather valuable insights from the information they receive. The question is, can algorithms be applied to XBRL data? Join our webinar to find out!
The webinar will take place on July 2, 2020 at 14.30 CEST. We will cover:
- How AI and XBRL can work together and how they differ
- The processing steps needed to make XBRL data usable in AI initiatives
- AI use cases in financial reporting and Visma Connect’s approach
