Back in August of last year, I posted a podcast on artificial intelligence and the practice of law (see here). My intro was as follows: "Have you seen the newest commercial for LegalZoom in which lawyers say "I am definitely not a robot!"? This line is a reference to recent debates as to whether lawyers can (or will be) replaced by robots or computers in the future. Interestingly, some lawyers have been replaced by computers already by a computer program that allows parties to resolve disputes without the need for lawyers, mediators or arbitrators. But I don't think we need to worry about all lawyers being replaced ....yet, at least"
The issue of artificial intelligence is back in the news and here is a new podcast courtesy of the Legal Talk Network: "Artificial intelligence has long been a tool for lawyers to perform
their tasks more efficiently. However, the technology has advanced to
the point where computers can now perform many of the tasks that were
once the exclusive domain of humans. In this month’s Asked and Answered, the ABA Journal’s Victor Li talks to freelance writer Julie Sobowale about how artificial intelligence is revolutionizing the practice of law."
