2fer Wed

Here is a two-fer Wednesday that will get you thinking. Most lawyers don't realize how dumb AI can be or how much training in a very narrow field it can take. So first up we have the top trend in AI - which could potentially solve those issues in legal. It could also be the fulfillment of the horrible apocalyptic visions of so many TV shows. "Machine Learning to Automated Machine Learning" tops the trends list. Let that sink in a bit. Next up we have Shashank Gupta's must read list of machine learning books. Honestly, in looking through the titles, I'm not sure any will make it to my night stand. But if you want to dig deeper, read more at Data Science Central:

Choosing the right model

Rob Mattern has an interesting post about models - eDiscovery models. Should you go in-house? Should you go with a managed service? Or should you go with something in-between. Rob lists the top benefits of each approach in this age old question. Read more at Mattern of Fact: Is Your eDiscovery Solution Undermining Your Law Firm's Competitive Advantage

Plumbing?

Time is short this morning and I haven't had an opportunity to listen to the nearly 20 minute audio interview with Brian Krebs. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say because I do think of security as a sort of plumbing. I don't mess with my pipes in my house because I don't know what I'm doing. I hire expert plumbers. Is that what Brian means? Read and listen to more at Legaltech news: Brian Krebs On Why Law Firms Shouldn't Treat Cybersecurity Like 'Some Kind of Plumbing'

If you like Ron Friedmann's posts, then you might want to pick up the book Leaders in Legal Business where Ron introduces KM. It is published by Association of International Law Firm Networks. And if last year's KM project hasn't been reviewed a second time, you may want to do that as well. Nick Milton says, "There is also merit in repeating this exercise one year (or more) later." Make sure to read more at:Prism Legal: Knowledge Management Overview - 2018 Edition
Knoco stories: The "One Year After" knowledge capture event.
