The Northwest Legal Industry Alliance invites you to join us for a networking reception and presentation by Dan Lear entitled:

Legal Professionals: IBM’s Watson is coming for your job.  Are you ready?

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

4:00 – 6:00 pm

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

1201 Third Avenue, Suite 2200

Seattle, Washington 98101

Registration: http://bit.ly/1rSqsuq

Wine, beer and appetizers will be served.

The cost to attend is $20 per person and pre-registration is required.

About the presentation:

In 2011 IBM’s Watson soundly defeated two very successful former champions of the quiz-show Jeopardy! It was a benchmark if not for the artificial intelligence itself then certainly for AI in the public consciousness. But Watson is not stopping there; in fact, “he’s” just getting started. Among the first industries that Watson is tackling is law, with help from legal technology innovators Dan Katz and Paul Lippe. An engineer from IBM has even built a “personal Watson” for pro se litigation. If IBM can teach Watson to win Jeopardy, you can bet they can teach it file briefs, organize and review contracts, and perform routine, and maybe even more complex, legal tasks. And IBM is not the only one working on these problems. Hundreds of legal technology startups and millions of venture capital dollars are bringing an lodging an innovative market-disrupting assault on the monolith that has been the legal industry (including challenging regulation of lawyers).
