• This article by Joanna Goodman (author of Robots in Law: How Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Legal Services) is an excellent recap of a Luminance-sponsored roundtable discussion by in-house counsel of the AI tools they have used and their success with them. It also touches on the changes going on in the legal world generally. It’s a very worthwhile read.

 

  • From Above the Law, this discussion of the evolution of AI applications in legal work from hype to more realism.

 

  • Ireland-based McCann FitzGerald has launched a GDPR Gap Analysis Application. “Built with an AI-engine supplied by Neota Logic as part of a long term development agreement, the app assesses an organization’s GDPR compliance level by asking a series of questions.”

 

  • Also from Above the Law, three ways AI may create more law firm clients and jobs for lawyers: “Artificial Confusion: AI Will Create More Legal Jobs – Not Take Them Away.”

 

 

  • From June Hsiao Liebert, Director of Library and Research Services at Sidley: “Law Firms & Technology – 6 Vital Questions to Ask Your Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics Vendors.” Hint: it’s all about the data.

 

  • AI for A2J has come to Russia! Law.com reports that, “Pravoved, a Russian legal marketplace, has designed a chatbot platform to consult Russian citizens on consumer rights protection.” It sounds pretty sophisticated.

 

  • Artificial Lawyer reports that Jim Cramer’s The Street has engaged Seal Software, to “leverage its capabilities for a broader range of contract analysis uses,” and for “GDPR compliance issues.”
