Coming to “Terms” with AI

Coming to “Terms” with AI: Artificial Intelligence Best Practices

Cimplifi started a new blog series on the “nuts and bolts” of AI for legal professionals, and this post involves coming to “terms” with AI!

Their post (Coming To “Terms” with AI, Using AI, available here) discusses how before we can really begin to understand AI, it’s important to define several of the common terms associated with it. For example:

  • You may think you know what artificial intelligence is, but do you know what augmented intelligence is? Did you know that many applications of what people consider to be AI are really augmented intelligence?
  • What’s the difference between supervised and unsupervised learning?
  • What is synthetic data?
  • Is ChatGPT a Large Language Model (LLM), Generative AI, a chatbot or a Generative Pre-trained Transformer?

There are countless terms that relate to AI, so Cimplifi picked 18 of the most important terms that (they believe) legal professionals should know today. They arranged them in an order where each should be defined before it’s referenced in another term.

Of course, there are a variety of sources of definitions of AI terms out there and each of them are a little bit different. Which one is the best? That’s open to debate. So, what resource did Cimplifi use for their post involving coming to “terms” with AI? Find out here, it’s only one click! Let’s just say it’s a resource that knows a bit about AI! 😉

So, what do you think? Are you excited to learn about the nuts and bolts of AI? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
