• From Artificial Lawyer: “Canadian legal AI company, Diligen, has won BN Lawyers, the Macau law firm, as a client for its machine learning and NLP technology. At the same time, the Toronto-based AI team has also launched a new API that is aimed at widening the use cases for its automated review technology. Interestingly, the BN Lawyers firm said that one of the key drivers for adopting AI technology was a lack of trained lawyers in the Special Administrative Region of Macau to handle process tasks.”

 

  • From Accountancy Daily: “KPMG is to expand its global alliance with software development platform provider Appian in a push to create artificial intelligence (AI) services which improve business decision-making and compliance. The relationship will see KPMG combine its existing ‘Ignite’ portfolio of AI services, which includes methods and tools, with the speed, features, and intelligent automation (IA) capabilities of Appian’s low-code platform.”

 

  • What’s AI worth? According to a study by Gartner, “Artificial intelligence will be worth $1.2 trillion to the enterprise in 2018.” Translation: a LOT!
