The information aggregated through AI learning systems allows companies to develop algorithms that could assist in decision-making. The panel will discuss how these systems extract expert information through raw data, transferring the valuable expert knowledge into AI systems, without paying for the expert information. Such a discussion is critical for a profession that is valued for its knowledge, expertise and ability to consolidate information. Will law firms or government legal services require fewer lawyers, articling students and associates to draft contracts, legislation or regulations?
