Karen Painter Randall, Chair of Connell Foley's Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Group, will moderate a plenary session on "Artificial Intelligence and the Coming Age of the Superhuman Lawyer" at the American Bar Association's (ABA) Fall 2017 National Legal Malpractice Conference. Karen will join Andrew Arruda, CEO, ROSS Intelligence; Sterling Miller, Partner, Hilgers Graben PLLC; and Jason Smith, Senior Director and Legal Counsel, Apttus, in a discussion of the way artificial intelligence (A.I.) is changing the way lawyers think, do business and interact with clients.
As described in the conference brochure, "Artificial intelligence is more than legal technology; it is a paradigm shift in how legal work is done. Software designers are now creating programs to use data to predict litigation and reduce the time needed for e-discovery and document review, because the software searches for concepts as opposed to simple keywords, allowing lawyers to focus on higher value tasks. While this is exciting and new, it is not without risk. This panel of experts will explore the current state of A.I. used in law firms and corporate legal departments, its anticipated impact on the legal profession, how it may play a role in ethics and legal malpractice, and what action should be taken to be prepared for the future of A.I. The future is here. Are you ready?"
The Fall 2017 National Legal Malpractice Conference will be held September 13-15 in Colorado Springs, CO. For more information, please visit:
