Extract from Artificial Lawyer's article "AI Pioneer, Legal Robot, Bags $100k For Journalism Research Tool"
One of the earlier legal AI pioneers, Legal Robot – which has mostly had a focus on corporates and is based in California – has been awarded $100,000 to ‘create a free research tool that journalists and the public can use to find and analyse government contracts, so that they may better understand how public entities use the people’s resources’
The funding is part of the Ethics and Governance in AI Initiative, a joint project of the MIT Media Lab and the Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society. It awarded the funding through the AI and the News Open Challenge. The total pot is $750,000 and seven projects were funded, out of 500 applications.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
