Written by  //  July 18, 2017  //  2 Comments

Artificial intelligence has caught fire in the media. 2016 was a breakout year for AI and 2017 continues the trend, with law firm after law firm outright adopting AI or experimenting with it, particularly among the larger firms.

In the 2017 Futures Conference session “Hype vs. Reality: Is Everything AI Now,” Chris Boyd, Andy Daws and Michael Mills will help to separate hype from reality in this intense look at what is AI and what is not AI.
