How Artificial Intelligence is changing everything


Guest contribution by Vincent Poulain D'Andecy


In this article, Vincent Poulain d’Andecy, Research Department Manager at Yooz, revisits his early days at the organisation, which had started using artificial intelligence in Accounting from the very beginning.


At Yooz, why did you decide to use artificial intelligence to automate accounting processes for companies?

We also think about computers that recognise and analyse documents automatically.

At least not before you have processes and policies embedded!
