Are we witnessing a huge step forward in legal document processing using the kind of image-sorting technology we take for granted in everyday lives? Quite likely.
As Mark Cohen points out in his recent Forbes article, lawyers will work alongside “robots” and, as we already know, there are a large number of legal functions that can be replaced by technology. That number will undoubtedly increase.
The infusion of natural language processing and machine learning into the legal profession will allow lawyers to serve more customers in the same hour than they ever thought possible. As the technology improves, so will the quality of legal services, while the cost and speed will drop. More customers – business and consumers – will have affordable access to legal support. Lawyers who build A.I.-enabled service products will benefit professionally and economically in ways they did not know were possible.
Our #LegalMosaic Series collects insights from the brilliant mind of Mark Cohen.
