How To Leverage AI To Boost Internal Controls

Nowadays there are a lot of discussions around how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) are going to impact the GRC world.

But what really strikes my curiosity, more than the theoretical discussions around future AI applications, is to learn how some companies already implemented such technology in their operations.
