Robo-Lawyer: The Legal Profession Evolves
The legal profession is also getting disrupted with new technology. US Law firm uses artificial intelligence - but the fees will probably be very real! Will the artificial intelligence lawyer charge by the hour?
Times of India reports that the world's first artificial intelligence lawyer has been employed by a law firm in the US, which will use the robot to assist its various teams in legal research. The robot called 'ROSS' is built upon Watson , IBM's cognitive computer. With the support of Watson's cognitive computing and natural language processing capabilities, lawyers can ask ROSS their research question and the robot reads through the law, gathers evidence, draws inferences and returns highly relevant, evidence-based answers. ROSS also monitors the law around the clock to notify users of new court decisions that can affect a case. The programme continually learns from the lawyers who use it to bring back better results each time.
