Do you want AI with that – Andrew Haslam’s annual review of the New York LegalTech show

Share Button

Each year I try to identify a theme for the article to bind the different strands together. This year is reflected in the slightly tongue in cheek headline “Do you want AI with that?” as in the fast food industry where “do you want fries with that?” became a standard upsell to any order, so AI seems to be tacked on to every presentation (and a lot of demonstrations) at the event. As you will see, the theme throughout the show, was the use of AI within the legal industry. The overwhelming conference preoccupation with AI meant that there was a bit of a disconnect between the makeup of the exhibition (which was, as ever, dominated by eDiscovery suppliers), and the key notes, briefing sessions, conversations and side events going on during the three days.
