The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Empowering the Data Driven Lawyer

@machinelearnbot

While covering the rapid rise in the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) during the past few years, I have had the privilege of monitoring its implementation in numerous sectors. As part of my current series of interviews with the RELX Group, I been able to see the use of analytics from Artificial Intelligence in the legal industry. The legal sector has a lot of data to work with which makes it ideal for the implementation of AI and ML. To understand how these technologies are being deployed in the legal sector, I interviewed Jeff Reihl, CTO at LexisNexis. LexisNexis is one of the world's leading providers of business, legal, and regulatory information.

This is an edited and updated version of a two part blog written by me which was published as a two part series on the LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions portal on 6th & 13th June 2016. The blog posts (combined here) reflect an element of the content of my keynote speech I shared with delegates at the Lexis InterActionShare conference in April 2016. It is reproduced with kind permission. At the recent LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions' InterAction Share event in London, I shared with delegates my insight and advice in relation to the rise of smart technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), robots and machine learning in the legal ecosystem and how these technologies are being, and will be, deployed in the industry. By addressing all of the above, it naturally led to my tackling the challenging question "what is the next legal frontier?"
