Briefing Frontiers - Waking up to cognitive technology: Artificial intelligence in law firms

This exclusive event is part of the Briefing Frontiers innovation series which will be hosted throughout 2017. 

There is significant debate about whether artificial intelligence (AI) will have a radical impact on the legal profession. What do we mean by radical – do we mean the elimination of thousands of jobs? Or rapid advancement of software allowing artificial intelligence to offer front end/client facing services. Do we mean chat bots who are able to give legal advice? Do we mean the radical way that business could be sped up as a result of artificial intelligence? This event will present the many sides of this complex and intriguing innovation as it pervades the legal sector.
