MSBA's Business-as-Usual Webcast. ROSS Intelligence

Event Description


This week, we’re joined by Thomas Hamilton of ROSS Intelligence to talk about AI-enabled legal research. We’ll also talk about more broadly about the risks and benefits associated with the legal profession’s adoption of artificial intelligence to meet a broad diversity of law-related challenges; from making sentencing recommendations to surviving the quarantine.

ROSS is one of MSBA’s newest Advantage Partners. Strictly speaking, ROSS is a competitor of one of MSBA’s most popular resources, Fastcase. Why add ROSS? For the same reason Fastcase recently chose to partner with ROSS. ROSS’s AI expertise and Fastcase’s access to a great depth of legal content means the two companies are well-suited to co-develop new products. The two services offer independent value to user-members. We’ll ask Mr. Hamilton about this new partnership and the independent value of both resources.

NOTE: If you can't join on Zoom, find us at YouTube Live. We monitor chat on both channels.
