Putting Sanity Around AI

Thanks to Gabby Isturiz for this insightful article discussing AI in legal practice. Its an article that urges a balanced and realistic view of AI.

My take-away: ... "we have to be careful not to get so wrapped up in the excitement of AI that we fail to distinguish between AI that actually brings about tangible and helpful changes, and those that are simply AI for the sake of AI."

Like any technology, understanding what it is - and what it can do - is vital. Tech for the sake of tech.. usually a waste of resources or worse..

When did your firm last look at your financial preparedness plan?
