Can Robots Manage Your Compliances?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a fascinating concept of science fiction for decades, but now we are finally getting to see AI as a reality. Artificial Intelligence, also called machine learning, is the ability of computer systems to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence and where computers automatically learn from past data and keep becoming intelligent.

For instance, IBM Watson is an artificially intelligent computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language. IBM Watson takes a question expressed in natural language, seeks to understand the meaning of the question in greater detail and then returns a precise answer to that question.

Though it is hard to predict the applications and future of Artificial Intelligence, robots powered by artificial intelligence will be available to do any programmed processes including Governance, Risk & Compliance, in future. Robots will track the law, read the law, interpret and analyze the law and present you with gap analysis with respect to compliances and non-compliances, risks and control failures etc.

While Robotics takes its own course, with the law now changing almost on a daily basis, the complexities of compliances are only increasing and so are the penalties of non-compliances, faster than ever. It is therefore both urgent and important to adopt a compliance system which is intelligent, reliable and hassle-free.

Here’s the forecasted trend in Governance, Risk & Compliance in the next 1-3 years:

  1. Risk and implications of non-compliance will be high: Doing scalable and sustainable business in India in an organized form will only be possible in an ethical and compliant way. The penalties for non-compliances will shoot through the roof.
  1. Responsibility and Liability of Compliance Officers will be much higher: The Directors will heavily rely on the CEO /CFO / General Counsel / Company Secretary / Compliance Officer for risk management in business including legal and compliance risk management.
  1. The role of technology in Governance, Risk & Compliance will increase: We can see an increasing trend in the use of technology in the Governance, Risk and Compliance domains. Officers manually tracking thousands of compliances, documents, excel sheets and legal updates will soon be a thing of the past. It will be increasingly non-productive to track and monitor or even figure out all the compliances applicable to your organization in excel files, let alone the repercussions of missing any.
  2. Cost of Governance, Risk and Compliance Software will drastically come down: If you thought that these software are expensive and are only for the large organizations, just re-check once and you may be happily surprised.
