The Future of Contract Automation & Intelligence: Human-in-the-Loop Technology
We know that complex processes can be accelerated by AI as long as it’s paired with a human operator — an approach called human-in-the-loop. During this session, attendees will learn how advancements in legal technology make these processes easier by turning documents into data that feeds an AI system. In doing so, companies — with the help of seasoned human legal experts — can use AI to augment their abilities and find efficiencies in everything from how they negotiate documents to how they manage their obligations to their business partners.
