Robotics in Accounting?

Everybody knows robotics have penetrated the auto manufacturing and warehousing industries, but how could that ever affect Accounting?  In her recent Article on, Dr. Kasthuri Henry references several sources, including an EY Report outlining how Robotics Process Automation can save 80% of the cost of a human to perform recurring tasks endlessly and without error. This will of course reduce the need for employees to perform certain tasks while at the same time requiring IT Finance specialists to create the systems to interact.  We feel this underscores the increasing need for IT professionals who support Finance to gain more understanding of accounting and finance principles.
