With the discussion around the impact of generative AI dominating the dialogue within the legal services industry, it is easy to buy into the hype without considering if the technology is the appropriate tool for the task.
Why strike a nail with a jackhammer, where a hammer and an accurate hand produce a better result?
In eDiscovery, digital forensics, and cyber investigations, we have been solving complex challenges using tried and true methods and technical stacks that produce the same, if not better results, in a more defensible manner than the latest and greatest generative AI. However, adoption of even these early-generation approaches to solving data-centric challenges have not been fully embraced by an industry that is now rushing to consider generative AI-based technologies.
In this webinar, expert panelists from HaystackID and Reveal Data will discuss the unfortunate confusion around these types of technologies and share on the opportunities and appropriate use for structured analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and different large language models in the context of cybersecurity, information governance, and legal discovery. Panelists will also highlight methods for validating the output of these systems, including the dangers of black box approaches when leveraging artificial intelligence, so that attendees can take back to their practices or organizations positive and trusted information to help streamline and encourage the adoption of AI to solve data-centric problems.
