Much is being talked about Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing, Investigative Analysis, Predictive Modelling and Technology Assisted Reviews. But what does this all mean to a law firm? Debunk the myths and educate yourself on what is hype and what could be harnessed by your law firm to drive innovation and efficiency. This seminar will consider how best to approach AI and how it is impacting the legal sector. 

Where most traditional enterprise search platforms are static and document centric, Nalytics delivers a dynamic approach that is content centric. It can look in the metadata, within the whole document, documents by section, content by paragraph and provides a single sentence Big Data service focused on unstructured data. Nalytics uses the inherent textual structure of document and data content to enable precise and accurate searches scalable from single and small numbers of project documents to corporate shared drives containing millions of documents. Nalytics is a High Precision Search & Discovery platform, powered by Artificial Intelligence and Neuro Linguistic Programming.

Attendance at this meeting is free of charge and open to all. Please email to book a place.
