Nuts and Bolts of AI

The Nuts and Bolts of AI for Legal Professionals: Artificial Intelligence Best Practices

Cimplifi has started a new blog series on the nuts and bolts of AI for legal professionals, which shows just how disruptive AI can be!

Their post (The “Nuts and Bolts” of Artificial Intelligence for Legal Professionals, available here) discusses how there are a lot of misconceptions about artificial intelligence in terms of what it is, how it works, and the benefits and risks of using it.

As we saw with the Avianca case earlier this year where an attorney filed a brief with several bogus case citations generated by ChatGPT, the output from AI algorithms isn’t always reliable. There are also risks of bias associated with an AI algorithm, privacy considerations, and transparency concerns that the AI algorithm is a “black box” that we don’t understand.


Still, AI can provide many benefits and support many use cases, including legal use cases, and responsible use of AI can enable legal professionals to get their work done more efficiently and cost effectively. To better understand how to maximize the benefits of AI while minimizing the risks associated with it, Cimplifi is starting a new series on the nuts and bolts of AI for legal professionals to help demystify some of the misconceptions about it, and position you to confidently evaluate using AI solutions in your legal practice.

In their first post, they discuss how AI is disrupting the business world and how it is already disrupting the legal industry! Want to know how? Find out here, it’s only one click! Gotta bolt before I go nuts! 😀
