Dearest EDRM community,
The word of the week is incursion.
Israel was invaded and declared war with Hamas. Black hat hackers who compromised 23 and Me, the genetic platform, are selling the personal information of those with Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. Pakistan has given Afghani refugees until October 30 to leave the country even as an earthquake killed 2400+. AI Software companies are considering joining hardware companies like Apple in making chips as hyperspecialized processing units take on NVIDIA’s parallel processing GPU’s. Amazon disclosed it uses conversations with Alexa to train AI. DeepMind is building generalist AI for multiple types of robots.
In legal tech this week
Michael Mills, founder of Neota Logic, left us too early. Niki Black lights the way with “The Path to Generative AI for Legal Professionals.” Casey Flaherty and Lex Fusion hosted a candid conversation on how AI is actually being used. Applications for coveted spots in the ABA TECHSHOW’s Startup Alley are open. The Future Society and the IEEE have published an ESI Protocol. Rob Robinson has a new article out on The Role of Fluidity in Accelerating AI in eDiscovery. Mark your calendars, E-Discovery Day is December 7, 2023 and there is a short fun survey out we hope you will give a few minutes to take.
