Next semester – I am looking forward to teaching Blockchain, Cryptocurrency + Law with CK alum Nelson Rosario – there is real demand for this class among our students – the class was full before registration was even complete — we have 50 students taking the class and had to turn away a number of students … #LegalTech #Blockchain #LegalInnovation #Hashtag
Fish & Richardson is one of the largest IP firms in the US so it is cool to see them exploring these ideas. If you look at this intro using Microsoft Azure – this is very on point with lots of we have been saying about the mix of semistructured data and #MLaaS (machine learning as a service) … and why we teach both an introduction to quant methods and a machine learning for lawyers course.
I was revisiting some of our old stuff for this Oslo event -early on for us on our #LegalPhysics #LegalAnalytics path – published in Physica A – “By applying our sink clustering method, we obtain a dendrogram of the network’s largest weakly connected component shown in Fig. 4. However, despite their general topical relatedness, these two clusters of cases engage substantively different sub-questions, and are thus appropriately divided into separate clusters. While not a major focus of the docket of the modern court, the early court elaborated a number of important legal concepts through the lens of these admiralty decisions. For example, the red group of cases engages questions of presidential power and the laws of war, as well as general interpretations of the Prize Acts of 1812. Meanwhile, the blue cluster engages questions surrounding tort liability, jurisdiction, and the burden of proof.”
Yesterday was the 2nd Edition of The Forum on Legal Evolution – Hosted at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law — The Forum is comprised of legal innovators and early adopters, organized around a shared interest in the changing legal market. Paul Lippe + Mark Chandler received lifetime achievement awards. Thanks to William Henderson and his team for organizing the event!
