In the last 10 years, robotic surgical systems have revolutionized the way doctors approach minimally invasive surgery, especially laparoscopic and arthroscopic procedures. AI-enabled systems can also provide doctors with suggestions based on symptoms, learning from medical diagnoses and the outcomes of the symptoms. As with medicine, the field of law will be revolutionized in the coming years by the application of AI-enabled systems and networks to the practice of law.
Those systems are here today. Systems like ROSS, which is built on IBM’s cognitive computer Watson, are designed to read and understand natural language, develop theories of a case when asked questions, and conduct legal research. It is now being deployed by at least one major law firm to assist with Bankruptcy work.
