AI in Practice: a glimpse at the road ahead

Posted on January 31, 2020 by PinHawk Editors


The Fourth Industrial RevolutionThis week PinHawk launches its coverage of AI in Legal Practice.  We’re publishing the first in what will be a continuing series of special reports that will focus on the companies, products and people that are responsible for building the legal market of tomorrow.

Depending on which expert you speak with, artificial intelligence and machine learning are either just the latest overblown hype to sweep through the legal market or else they are transformative technologies that will truly revolutionize the nature of legal practice and how legal work gets done.  With such divergent views among the pundits and commentators, it’s hard for the rest of us to form a clear picture of exactly what changes AI/ML technology is likely to bring in the coming years.  That’s the goal of these PinHawk special reports. We will be taking a closer look at some of the current realities of AI in Legal Practice and try to advance your understanding between these two competing views. 

What’s happening in the legal market today is part of a much larger story which touches almost every sector of the world’s economy and culture.  The advent of artificial intelligence and machine learning is part of what has been called the Fourth Industrial Revolution; it rests upon the convergence and integration of digital, biological and physical systems, which opens the door to incredibly more powerful and streamlined ways to manage information, as well as to produce all conceivable types of goods and services. In other words, it’s a pretty big deal, and well worth paying attention to the way these emerging technologies are spurring the economic, social and cultural transformations of the 21st century.  We hope you find PinHawk’s ongoing coverage a helpful guide to the road ahead.
