ABA TECHSHOW 2017: Why Robots Won’t Take Lawyer Jobs

The panel was called “The Startups Are Building Robot Lawyers” but they unanimously concluded that this is not the case. In this report from On The Road, host Laurence Colletti talks to Andrew Arruda, Shamla Naidoo, and Ed Walters about artificial intelligence and how technology is helping lawyers, not replacing them. They end their discussion with a call for open-mindedness toward and collaboration with technology in the legal industry.

Andrew Arruda is the ‎CEO and co-founder of ROSS Intelligence, the world’s first artificially intelligent attorney.

Shamla Naidoo is IBM’s Vice President of IT Risk and Chief Information Security Officer.
