“Big four” accounting and professional services firms EY has appointed Keith Strier as its global and Americas artificial intelligence (AI) leader for advisory services, the company announced this week.
Strier will be responsible for setting the strategy for the firm’s AI advisory services, including investments, offerings, partnerships, and messaging. He will be based in Irvine, California, and also continue to act in his current role, which is global technology sector digital leader.
In this position, he has been charged with developing EY’s “intelligent automation” operations, “though leadership agenda” on artificial intelligence, and algorithm framework. He has also worked on the company’s “Hyper-Automated System Design,” which offers an attempt to help companies integrate robotic, intelligent, and autonomous systems.
“AI represents a clear inflection point for the global economy, and EY is ready for it,” said Strier. “We are developing the full slate of AI strategy, design, architecture, infrastructure, and managed services our clients need to capitalize on the complete spectrum of technology innovations including intelligent automation, AI, blockchain, and the Internet of Things.
The new global AI leader added the he sees the ongoing development as one that will use automation and artificial intelligence to augment, rather than replace, human workers. “Our goal is to help clients harness these advances in a human-centered and ethical manner, building a better working world for future generations,” said Strier.
