One of DHG’s core values has always been to embrace technology. Holding the position of Director of the Assurance Innovation and Methodology Group at DHG, Adam Roark leads this vision. In his role, Roark spearheads a team of professionals that ensures the maintenance and improvement of DHG Assure, the firm’s proprietary audit methodology. His team also oversees the adoption of emerging technologies to keep improving auditing processes and delivering greater value to clients.
Among the technologies that the team kept an eye on was machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). According to Roark, “Years ago, we kept hearing about machine learning and how it could possibly benefit the accounting and auditing profession. In partnership with some affiliates, we built a proof of concept for a tool that used machine learning to help detect fraud. We wanted to know—can a machine help find fraud? The results were very interesting, but we never took things beyond that proof of concept because we weren’t satisfied with the technology solutions that were available at that time.
