Adversarial Learning of Deepfakes in Accounting

Tags: technical, time-series | Paper

This is a neat one because it’s taking a cute idea and adapting it to a (very exciting!) business process. Namely, the financial auditing of a business.

The point here is that, by being able to generate accounting records, we might be able to mislead auditors; or at least some computer-based auditing assessments. The idea would be, by using this kind of approach, one could construct misleading journal entries.

I think it’s really interesting to see this kind of adversarial work move out of the domain of images and into the finance world! I’m sure we’ll see more of these kind of general adversarial networks over coming years!
