Artificial Intelligence and the Legal Sector

McGill University invites you to join them for an AI and the Law talk with Hannes Westermann, who will examine the application of Artificial Intelligence to the legal sector.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being hailed as one of the biggest inventions of the 21st century. It is likely to have a profound impact on many areas of society. Already, AI is being used in many different fields, from playing complex board or computer games at superhuman levels, to customer specific marketing automation, to performing tasks previously reserved for humans, such as driving cars. AI allows computer programs to find and analyze patterns and correlations in huge amounts of data and use the results for the prediction of certain future events. This talk will focus on how these capabilities of Artificial Intelligence can be used within the complex area of legal practice.

This talk will also describe and demonstrate which elements and capabilities of AI can be used, and are already being used, in the field of law. This leads to considerations like: Will lawyers be replaced by computers? This talk will also be about some findings of our JusticeBot project, which aims to improve access to justice in landlord-tenant disputes using AI and discuss some of the challenges that we are facing.
