Description: Technology-fueled disruption has made its way into industries like healthcare, transportation, journalism and many more. At the center of this disruption is artificial intelligence ("AI"), which refers to a computer's ability to mimic "cognitive" functions such as "learning" and "problem solving" that are commonly associated with the human mind.

Those familiar with the practice of law expect that AI will disrupt the legal profession in the not-so-distant-future and that in fact it is already being utilized for tasks like contract review, e-discovery and practice management.

The session will provide a basic overview of AI in the legal profession, give specific examples of tools that incorporate AI technology and discuss opportunities for lawyers and other legal professionals.
