Description: Lawyers are required to make important decisions for their clients every day. Whether it is a complex issue regarding a multi-million dollar transaction or a routine matter concerning an employee agreement, these decisions require significant attorney time and resources. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies have the potential to help lawyers and their clients make these important decisions, streamline legal work, and reduce unnecessary transaction costs. Identify a specific legal problem facing intellectual property attorneys or the broader high-tech industry and explain how AI and machine learning technologies can be leveraged to solve that problem.
