AI v. CI

Today we have a tale of two types of intelligence and, it seems, two very different stories. Whereas opinion seems to souring on one for the moment, the other is enjoying its day in the sun. For your Wednesday reading pleasure, we say 'oh my' as we pit AI against CI. A word to the wise, however... Fortunes can and do change very quickly in this industry of ours!

No AI Afterglow...Yet!

One would think that from all of the ink and breath dedicated to artificial intelligence that the AI disruption was already well underway. Yet while the topic remains fascinating the potential is still very real, there still does not seem to a lot of practical implementation to which we can relate. Again, this is not to say that artificial intelligence is not the way of the future. Rather, the hullabaloo surrounding its storied potential appears to finally be losing some its shine. As Rhys Dipshan writes, "Many are simply coming to realize that the speed at which this reinvention will occur, and how it will occur, is too often overstated and likely still widely misunderstood." How does hype happen and why does it miss the mark? Get Rhys' insights in: Enough Hype Already: Inside Legal's (Over?) Excitement with AI.

CI Spotlight

Meanwhile, another formerly hyped area of research has finally come into its own and in a very practical way. Competitive Intelligence, once a bit of a buzz phrase itself, is now a major focus of our industry. From third-party providers to in-house intelligence teams, it has become a full-fledged discipline of repute and necessity. My colleagues at LAC Group today bring us a look at some of the currents that carried artificial intelligence along this year in: 2018 CI trends and insights.
