About this event
In the ever-changing landscape of eDiscovery and modern forms of evidence, understanding cutting-edge topics relating to Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become essential for litigators and other legal professionals. Topics to be covered in this webinar include the fundamentals of AI (what it is and how it works); an understanding of how AI is used both outside and inside the legal profession; some of the issues that AI raises; what admissibility issues are posed in introducing AI evidence and how to address those issues; as well as a description and analysis of the pertinent rules of evidence and how they apply to AI.
