The development of new technologies is going to revolutionise the working environment in the commercial world. Artificial Intelligence (AI), among these various technologies, has already made the most significant impact. It appears that this pattern will continue, as an increasing number of businesses are incorporating it into an essential component of their primary commercial strategy. One aspect of running a business that has not yet had its full impact realised is the function of learning and development in human resources. This dissertation project aims to investigate the effect that the widespread use of AI will have on the efficiency of learning and development in the accounting industry. Because there haven't been many academic investigations into this topic, the findings in the existing literature reveals that there is a significant knowledge gap in this area as a result. In light of this, a research project using mix methods has been designed and carried out among 217 accounting firms in Dublin.

The findings of this research show that AI adoption is positively correlated with the effectiveness of learning and development in the accounting sector. Personalizing the Learning Pathways by AI Adoption, Reinforcing Training and Development by Adoption of AI and Focusing on Virtual Learning by AI adoption have a strong positive correlation whereas Integrating Training Requirements by AI adoption has just a moderate correlation with Effectiveness of Learning and Development. Therefore, it is suggested to invest more on AI stratrgies to improve effectiveness of learning and development.
