Meet the Machines You’ll Be Running With

Written by  //  July 26, 2017  //  1 Comment

Nothing snaps an idea into focus better than concrete examples. During the 2017 College of Law Practice Management Futures Conference, you’ll witness four real-world examples of AI tools actually being used in actual practice on actual files. In “Meet The Machines You’ll Be Running With,” Kyle Doviken, Rick Kathuria, Marc Lauritsen and John Tredennick will demonstrate the real and present utility of this rapidly evolving technology. They will also explore its clear limitations and the narrow domains within which AI has its most practical application. Spoiler: It turns out that AI tech has a long way to go to fully realize on its potential. Second spoiler: That may not take as long as you think.

Space is limited, so register now for the 2017 Futures Conference, October 26-27, in Atlanta. Visit the 2017 Futures Conference page to view the agenda, download the conference brochure and learn more about the conference and the impressive line-up of speakers.
