Are Computers About to Eat Your Lunch (Or At Least Change the Way You Practice)?
You probably won't see R2D2 delivering a closing argument anytime soon. But computers and artificial intelligence (AI) are having profound effects on the way we practice law, particularly in document-intensive business litigation. Already machines routinely show themselves to be faster, cheaper and more accurate than human reviewers when it comes to reviewing documents for relevance and responsiveness, at least on a first-pass basis. So what does the future hold, and how has technology already changed the way we conduct — and fight over — discovery?
Our panel includes business litigators with deep knowledge of this area, plus two federal judges and a Stanford researcher who will bring us up to speed on what the future holds.
Join us on Tuesday, August 30 for a lively look at the business, ethical and practical aspects of AI entering the world of law.
