  2. Maybe Robots Will Hire More Lawyers Instead of Taking Our Jobs

    "Back 50 years ago, pretty much the only way to define a procedure for anything was to write it down, and have humans implement it. But then along came computers, and programming. And very soon it started to be possible to define vastly more complex procedures—to be implemented not by humans, but instead by computers.(via lawyerist.com)

  7. Bionic Lawyers: AI, Tech & Automating Your Legal Practice

    "The biggest misconception with AI and software, particularly in the legal space, is that we have developed what is called general or super intelligence.

This dynamic problem-solving ability remains the exclusive ability of humans, for now."  (via oba.org/JUST)
