As Artificial Intelligence has catapulted into global conversations recently, it\’s no surprise that LegalWeek23 is featuring multiple educational sessions on the matter. This year\’s conference, scheduled for March 20-23, 2023, has no less than 11 sessions dedicated to the topic alone. It will be imperative for legal technology professionals to increase their knowledge of Artificial Intelligence as we are seeing new career opportunities evolving around this technology at a rapid pace. In our ongoing poll about job loss/gains and AI, we see that nearly 2/3 of respondents believe some jobs are being eliminated due to AI.
The good news is that most of those people are simultaneously seeing new jobs created by AI, which means some people will need to add new skills to ensure they may remain employed in our sector. So please watch for those poll results coming soon to our blog.
That said, with over 80 sessions on the agenda, there are several key AI sessions you might want to attend, depending on your specialty within legal tech. Leaders in AI-powered review technology, such as DISCO and Reveal, are hosting sessions daily to discuss the use of Artificial Intelligence in litigation and investigations. There will also be sessions covering AI\’s help in preparing legal contracts and assessing compliance, security, and governance matters, including the much-publicized ChatGPT application. In addition, there will be discussions about AI driving business growth and supporting non-legal applications such as HR, such as the Wednesday afternoon session hosted by Luminance. Finally, some sessions will touch on ethical considerations of AI, including one sponsored by Clearbrief on Thursday morning.
