This week, LexPredict was featured in Paul Lippe’s “the new normal” column in the ABA Journal. In the article, LexPredict Chief Strategy Officer Daniel Martin Katz lays out ten predictions on the impact of IBM’s Watson on legal services. While many focus on what Watson and artificial intelligence mean specifically for attorneys, Dan and Paul cover all aspects of the marketplace – law school curricula, interdisciplinary academic trends, access for households and small business, firm and counsel knowledge management, legal process outsourcing (LPO), and firm competition. The article also features the LexPredict Supreme Court Prediction project.
While the full article is worth a deep read, the gist is best summarized in the closing line:
Law is struggling with its ability to manage complexity. If Watson can help us do better, that’s a good thing.
