AI is Future of Legal System – Ross Intelligence

Andrew Arruda, co-founder of Ross Intelligence, believes artificial intelligence is the future of the legal system and aims to incorporate AI into “the legal team of every lawyer in the world,” according to trade magazine The American Lawyer.

The Ross platform, which is built upon IBM’s Watson technology, found its first client last week. BakerHostetler, a firm with more than 900 lawyers across the US, partnered with Ross Intelligence to use its AI technology for bankruptcy matters, according to a joint statement from the law firm and Ross.

“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,” Bob Craig, CIO for BakerHostetler, said in a statement.

The AI won’t be used in the courtroom, but it could be a key resource for lawyers preparing for litigation, the statement said.

Ross claims its language processing capabilities allow it to respond to questions posed by lawyers about specific laws or cases. The computing system then gathers evidence, reads through laws and draws inferences about the material it has collected.

The AI program also aims to keep lawyers up to date on new court decisions that could impact their own ongoing cases. Similar to Watson, Ross learns from its interactions and reportedly provides better results after each use.
