What AI Programs for Lawyers Are Available Now?

For practicing lawyers looking for AI assistance, good help is hard to find. Although there are now several AI tools available, figuring out which ones are worth it and which ones are a waste, can seem like more of a hassle than any of it is worth.

However, if you are able to find an AI tool that fits your needs, all the hassles, trials, and tribulations will be worth it. Below, you can read about a few of the AI tools that are already available for attorneys, and one of them is actually both good and free.

1. Startup Offers AI Robots for Patent Lawyers

RoboReview, made by Turbo Patent, helps patent practitioners review and analyze patent applications. Like a spell-checker, the program reads the applications, suggests changes based on patent eligibility, novelty and other matters, and spit out a report that normally would get prepared by paralegals or other patent attorneys.

2. Would You Trust an AI with Your Legal Research?

EVA made by ROSS Intelligence is an amazing legal research tool that allows litigators and researchers to simply drop a brief, or pleading, or document, into the program and get back a hyperlinked list of every cited case. In addition to returning every cited cases, the tool also provides information as to whether those cases have received positive or negative treatment. Setting EVA apart from nearly every other AI tool for lawyers, ROSS Intelligence is offering EVA to everyone for free (and as of now, there is no catch, no credit card required, nor trial period; but email sign up is required).

3. How Can Your Law Firm Use Facial Recognition Technology?

When it comes to facial recognition software, lawyers and law firms now have more options than ever before. Apart from using it as part of a biometric authentication protocol (a la the iPhone X), facial recognition software is now being plugged into ediscovery platforms in order to facilitate review where helpful (think reviewing surveillance camera footage).

4. Are You Ready for Amy, the Robot Secretary?

When it comes to answering phones and scheduling, an AI secretary might have a few advantages over a live one. For one, an AI program is likely to cost much less than employing an actual person to do the same work. Another benefit is that after hours calls will not only be answered, but if a client needs to schedule time, the AI secretary can do that as well. Amy and Andrew, the AI schedulers, are now out of beta readily available.
