Legal Tech & Artificial Intelligence Surrounding COVID-19
We will first explore the history of AI (as well as several misconceptions regarding its development), before providing a modern, up to date definition of what constitutes AI in 2020. From there, we will explore examples of AI in practice, through real world applications of the technology across multiple industry verticals, before examining the implications of AI for law and providing a live demonstration of their legal research technology. Finally, we'll conclude the presentation then wrap things up with a discussion of where the legal industry is heading in 2020 and what role AI will play in 2020 and beyond, specifically surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
