Tomorrow I will be at the Stanford CodeX Future Law 2016 Conference @Stanford Law School. I will be moderating the following panel:
Hot or Not – Watson and Beyond
What data analytics technologies are in use today?
What’s real and what’s marketing buzz?
What’s possible in the foreseeable future?
What are the implications for providers and consumers of legal services?
What are the limitations?
What are the policy implications?

Today I presented at Vanderbilt Conference on Artificial Intelligence and the Law – my afternoon talk was entitled – “From Causal Inference to Predictive Analytics: AI Research by Legal Academics (and Beyond).”
This month’s ABA Journal Cover Story is about Artificial Intelligence and Law where a wide range of companies and topics are highlighted. Our work on #SCOTUS Prediction (which is being extended in a meta-ensemble of Experts, Crowds + Algorithms) is briefly discussed. In addition, Denton’s NextLaw Labs (disclosure I am an advisory board member) is also highlighted.
The program committee for the 16th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law has just named King College London as the host for the biannual ICAIL conference. Mark you calendars for 2017 in London!
Quantitative Methods for Lawyers is the first course in a two course sequence and it assumes no prior knowledge of statistics / quantitative thinking. You will learn basic concepts and will receive an introduction to R (the open source programming language which is lingua franca of statistical computing). Those with a prior knowledge of statistics, etc. might be advised to simply start with our Legal Analytics course (which is a primer in machine learning / advanced analytics for lawyers that I teach with Michael Bommarito).
