The days of an all E-Discovery show at Legalweek in New York City may be over.

LexBlog is not on the the only Seattle company that will be talking to law firms about the use of AI in products law firms are already using. In our case, it’s the use of an AI assistant in digital publishing and blogging.

Reduced time, increased creativity and quick and tailored social media are just some of what law firms are finding in the use of Lou, our AI assistant running on the LexBlog publishing platform.

If you’re attending the Legalweek conference in New York City from January 29 to February 1, I’d love to connect. Email me or reach me via my contact information you’ll find on LinkedIn.

On the slightly larger side, also from Seattle, Microsoft announced today that it’s presence at Legalweek will be all about AI.

From Caitlin Fitzgerald, a Senior Product Marketing Manager:

“The legal profession is known for being cautious or hesitant to adopt new technologies. However, when it comes to AI, it seems like legal professionals are ready to be on the leading edge of AI implementation. A Thomson Reuters survey of legal professionals found that 82% agree that AI can be useful in legal work and 51% agree that AI should be applied to legal work. With the growing use of AI in litigation and number of data storage locations, the process of ediscovery gets increasingly more complex and must be more agile, comprehensive, and integrated. The tools legal professionals need in today’s digital environment necessitate using advanced tools such as AI to locate the relevant data quickly and securing data in a way that complies with myriad regulations and major challenges. To help you secure data and address your needs efficiently in the age of AI, we’re making it easier to safeguard and manage compliance of data using generative AI tools. Recent advanced capabilities of Microsoft Purview eDiscovery are aimed at giving you the advantage.”

Microsoft, like other companies is going to have a series of AI sessions expanding on its work in AI in the law.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in New York.
