AI: Understanding the Role of Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning

This session will be a primer on Artificial Intelligence and how advances in machine learning techniques and tools are transforming many of the (necessary but routine) tasks that lawyers do every day. In our war to provide meaningful access to justice, it is unrealistic to think that the current army of lawyers can address the overwhelming legal needs of the most vulnerable and underserved among us. Achieving success will require careful coordination between generals (human lawyers) and a cavalry of autonomous foot soldiers (high-speed artificial intelligence applications, leveraging continuously advancing algorithms). In this sense, 'machine learning' is analogous to West Point, preparing and training Justice Bots to help individuals overcome access issues that so pervade the American judicial system. In the end, these on-demand intelligent resources will allow lawyers to practice at the top of their license (i.e., in their highest and best roles as counselors and advocates) in a far more efficient and effective way, while empowering those in need through increased access and equipping them to make better choices.
