Artificial Intelligence and Law
MONGOUE YANGOP FRANCIS DERRICK, EO-204i, KNEU
What is palpable today is the confluence of the legal world, which is an environment of tradition and ancestral values evolving thanks to new technologies. These technologies are not necessarily disruptive, they are sometimes reasoned. Artificial Intelligence can seize the right.
“Code is Law”, the superposition of this famous Lessig maxim, provides an interesting insight into the politics of given architectures. The A.I. will certainly bring about many upheavals, but lawyers will know how to deal with it. The challenge will be to ensure that it is AI that is invested by lawyers and not vice versa.
The rise of Legaltech, these famous law startups, seems to have taken the lead in terms of digitalization of the legal sector. The use of technology and software to offer legal services and make the law more accessible, implies that the Legaltech sector disrupts the law in its own way, very often based on developed and efficient algorithms.
