The Sixth Annual Workshop on Applications of Artificial Intelligence in the Legal Industry

About the Event

The exponential growth of data has created significant business challenges in the legal industry. As complex data must be processed and analyzed to derive better insights, judgments, and effective strategies in legal cases, AI technologies and breakthroughs in machine learning are helping to overcome these challenges and reshape the legal industry. With both the challenges and opportunities brought by the applications of AI on legal big data, we identify there is a gap between the legal industry and academics working with AI applications in big data. Continuing the success of our workshop in previous years, the 6th Annual Virtual Workshop on Applications of Artificial Intelligence in the Legal Industry, aims to bridge that gap, further AI and big data analytics research applied to legal data, and provide an open and thoughtful dialogue about how these analytics could be leveraged to assist legal practitioners. The workshop is a part of the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Big Data. Join our 6th Annual Virtual Workshop on Applications of Artificial Intelligence in the Legal Industry, designed for attorneys and legal technologists, on Monday, December 19 at 9:30 am EST. Please feel free to attend all sessions of the workshop, or pick and choose when to join in.
