On August 1, we released Contrax Suite (an open source document analytics platform). It is important to note that we have decided upon dual licensing – (1) open source (AGPL) which is pretty hard core copyleft and (2) a more permissive license in specific circumstances. The key for us is to maintain the opensource ecosystem which requires balancing competing interests. We cannot grant the more permissive license to everyone under all conditions or it undermines the entire effort.
That said, we have a real problems in the A.I. + Law community. Some of the claims are outlandish and the business model (at its core) does not really make sense. We think that opensource helps solve for some (perhaps not all) of the adoption issues.
We are excited to announce the addition of Andrew Baker and Karl Haraldsson to the LexPredict Team. Andrew and Karl will advise LexPredict’s new and existing clients, including Fortune 500 companies and Am Law 200 firms, on strategy, service delivery modernization, data strategy and analytics, and process improvement.
From the article – “We are increasingly thinking that there’s room in legal tech for a Red Hat in legal — companies that really focus on development of software by providing wraparound services, but offer their software open source,” Michael J Bommarito II said.
From the article – “A computer-based interface called Deal Link has replaced informal checklists that were once tended and passed down between generations of rainmakers. It now arranges and tracks legal and compliance reviews, fills in forms and generates reports.”
