Soyez des nôtres pour une conférence L'intelligence artificielle et le droit avec Beverly Rich, candidate au doctorat, USC Marshall School of Business, qui nous parlera des l'emploi possible de l'intelligence artificielle dans le cadre des contrats et des obstacles qui préviennent actuellement l'emploi de ces outils.


[En anglais seulement] AI enabled technology has the potential to change the practice of law and the role of lawyers. Litigation analytics, legal research, practice management platforms, and contracting are all areas that are being transformed by AI technology. Contracts and contract management, in particular, are untapped sources of data that, in theory, are obvious places for AI enabled tools to add immediate value. But in practice, there are a number of challenges in adoption, design, and implementation of these tools that are hindering the progress of AI’s transformation of contracting. Much of my current research examines barriers to adoption of AI technology and how use of AI contracting software changes contracting dynamics (i.e., negotiation and drafting). I am looking forward to an extensive discussion on AI and contracting and, if time permits, I hope to discuss ideas that I have been working on recently related to, first, how the diverse incentive structures of law practice impact the development of technology and, second, interventions aimed at increasing adoption of AI technology in the legal context.
