We’ve all heard that machine learning and artificial intelligence is going to forever change litigation, legal work, and investigations. You may have even heard that robots may be taking your job. In this webinar, we will discuss the use cases for using technology in e-discovery and fraud investigations. You will learn what Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning really are, the latest advances in Natural Language Processing, Linguistic Intelligence, Behavioral Intelligence and more. To make this information relatable to everyday legal work, we will walk through several case studies, including what to do when key employees leave and how to manage structured and unstructured data in litigation. Our experts will discuss forensic collection procedures and the next steps for taking evidentiary material and importing to cognitive computing platforms.
