It is very apparent that technology has become more and more critical in the legal sector. In the very near future, if not even already, lawyers and legal departments will only be able to act as strategic enablers if they are freed up from repetitive work and adopt legal technology solutions which enable faster and smarter access to data.

Investments for Artificial Intelligence (AI) are growing globally, and recent studies make it very clear that law departments need to invest more in legal technology. At the same time, technology providers are developing new products and improving their current solutions at a very rapid pace. Overall, the legal tech market is very agile. As the year 2018 comes to an end and we welcome 2019, we feel that is time to take a snapshot look at the current legal tech sector.

In the area of new technologies, the digital universe doubles every two years - with an exponential growth of unstructured data. Companies worldwide feel a strong need to generate better insights and understand more quickly and efficiently what is contained within their data. However, though data volumes increase constantly, the timelines, team sizes and budgets remain static in many firms. A recently published study shows that this is also the case in the legal sector.

Nowadays, smart assistants can be found almost everywhere - in mobile phones, homes, cars. They are called Siri, Alexa, Cortana, Google Assistant, Bixby & Co. Their intention is to act as a personal assistant and make our lives easier: We tell them what we want, and they do it. Well, at least they should. But sometimes, or as some would say most of the time, it just doesn't work. Either they don't understand us or they do understand us but misinterpret or give the wrong answers to our questions. 

We recently held a Webinar on why this is happening, and what the challenges for modern technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are. Our Director of Product Management and Natural Language Processing (NLP) expert Christian Schömmer, delivered fascinating insights on how the different modules need to interweave to create a digital assistant that works perfectly. This blog post is a summary of the key talking points of the webinar.

It is that time of the year again: first snow, everything is lit up and cozy. The holiday season is beginning, starting now with Thanksgiving - a time to show gratitude and to be thankful for everything we have. But at the same time, we should not forget that there are people who have less and need our support. This is why it is so important that we give back.

How smart are Smart Assistants? Have you ever tried to get an answer from Siri, Alexa, Cortana & Co. on more sophisticated questions like "What should I do tonight?", "Do you have any feedback on that article for me?" or "When should the next board meeting happen?". If you did, you might have realized that the answers seem not very smart - you might even go as far as say a bit dumb.

Digital Assistants have been around for quite a while now, but still many people tend to be disappointed by the results when using them in their daily life. Without a doubt, Smart Assistants try their best to help, but often they misunderstand, misinterpret and malfunction. Different modules need to interweave to create a digital assistant that works perfectly. For a Smart Assistant to act on requests that are all given in a natural language, a couple of things need to happen.
