Artificially Intelligent Lawyer “Ross” Has Been Hired By Its First Official Law Firm

IN BRIEF

Ross, the world's first artificially intelligent attorney, has its first official law firm. Baker & Hostetler announced that they will be employing Ross for its bankruptcy practice, currently comprised of almost 50 lawyers.
ROSS: A VERY SMART ARTIFICIAL CO-WORKER

Law firm Baker & Hostetler has announced that they are employing IBM’s AI Ross to handle their bankruptcy practice, which at the moment consists of nearly 50 lawyers. According to CEO and co-founder Andrew Arruda, other firms have also signed licenses with Ross, and they will also be making announcements shortly.

Ross, “the world’s first artificially intelligent attorney” built on IBM’s cognitive computer Watson, was designed to read and understand language, postulate hypotheses when asked questions, research, and then generate responses (along with references and citations) to back up its conclusions. Ross also learns from experience, gaining speed and knowledge the more you interact with it.

“You ask your questions in plain English, as you would a colleague, and ROSS then reads through the entire body of law and returns a cited answer and topical readings from legislation, case law and secondary sources to get you up-to-speed quickly,” the website says. “In addition, ROSS monitors the law around the clock to notify you of new court decisions that can affect your case.”

Ross also minimizes the time it takes by narrowing down results from a thousand to only the most highly relevant answers, and presents the answers in a more casual, understandable language. It also keeps up-to-date with developments in the legal system, specifically those that may affect your cases.

THE LEGAL INDUSTRY ENHANCED


Baker & Hostetler chief information officer Bob Craig explains the rationale behind this latest hire: “At BakerHostetler, we believe that emerging technologies like cognitive computing and other forms of machine learning can help enhance the services we deliver to our clients.”

“BakerHostetler has been using ROSS since the first days of its deployment, and we are proud to partner with a true leader in the industry as we continue to develop additional AI legal assistants,” he added.

Well it deosn't mean much to me but it will when the judge is a machine , then I think things will be different!

Do you think a ai judge would give more sympathy an ai accused?

At least the ai judge should be able to tell if the ai accused is lying! Alien laugh

lol! well courts dont like polygraph machines so could be a tricky road!!

i reckon its not gonna mean much in the long run, the time for transparency throughout all of society has arrived so doubt "lawyers" or "judges" will even be a thing in ten years, just imagine how smoothly justice will flow with psychics and remote viewers instead of lawyers and judges...
