Artifical Intelligence (AI) Adopted by Law Firm Baker & Hostetler

In early May, Baker & Hostetler,, announced that it would use “a ground-breaking artificial intelligence product for legal research.”  The firm stated it would license Ross Intelligence in its bankruptcy practice.  Ross Intelligence, in turn, announced that Baker Hostetler will license ROSS for use by its Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights team. The ROSS platform is built on IBM’s Watson computer system, which has natural language processing and can respond to research questions posed by users. ROSS searches the law, draws inferences and informs the attorneys working on a legal case. See a PR Newswire report on this development, which is only the beginning of countless computerized expert system applications that will be emerging for legal and myriad other practice specialties in the exploding field of artificial intelligence.
