Summit 2020 Artificial Lawyers. Will Your Next Attorney be a Machine?

June 24, 2020 05:00 PM PT

Recently, there is a growing interest in applying AI in sectors that traditionally have been reluctant to use technology. The legal sector is one of them. Machine learning approaches are used to improve the work of entry-level lawyers. One application consists on extracting relevant information from the tones of documents that law firms possess for a case. In this talk, we are going to present a way to process unstructured data by means of Azure Cognitive Search and Databricks/MLFlow in order to extract that information to the lawyers. Another application relies on a solution for a class action case in which the law firm requires to select lead cases in order to represent the whole set of claimants in courts. This kind of cases consists on hundreds, or even thousands, of claimants. Different optimization approaches can be used for this case. We are going to talk about the one that we followed and implemented in Databricks/MLFlow. In summary, different uses of the AI are presented to help legal sector in its modernization.
