Becky Shields Interview: Why Kingston Smith uses MindBridge Ai

Kingston Smith, a top 20 UK chartered accountancy and audit firm is leveraging MindBridge’s Ai Auditor. Becky Shields talks about the value that Ai Auditor brings to the firm.


It’s important to cut through the hype surrounding AI, as people think it’s both costly and complicated to implement. ♪ [music] ♪We are using MindBridge Ai as a sample selector. Rather than our trainees using random number sampling, or trying to pick risky transactions out of a large data set, MindBridge ranks all of your transactions based on perceived risk.

MindBridge stands up to scrutiny by the regulators. If they ask me how I’ve picked a sample, I can say I’ve used MindBridge, and they’ll explain the technology, which is a lot more robust. MindBridge gives me confidence in my audit methodology, which is really important to me. ♪ [music] ♪
