Are these the first steps into automating legal services. We have heard of IBMs Watson making some great paths within the legal industry. I would be keen to know more around Baker McKenzie's journey on this area.
Baker McKenzie, the world’s second biggest law firm, has announced plans to introduce due diligence software based on machine learning, a form of artificial intelligence (AI), as part of an innovation drive that looks to import ‘design thinking’ into how it delivers legal services. Jason Marty, the firm’s global director of operations, told Legal Futures that the new technology was “adept at information location” and could improve lawyer output on due diligence by anything from 20% to 40%.
