The ability of artificial intelligence systems to derive meaning from text and images has been rapidly improving in recent years. As these machine learning systems become more complicated, so too do the requirements for creating and maintaining them. This discussion will explore data annotation and the wider role of humans in AI from a data science perspective, the impacts to legal technology and legal use cases, and how this all relates to one clever horse. Topics include:
- The Clever Hans Story and its Relation to AI
- The Myth of AI: Inflated Expectations and Unfounded Concerns
- The Reality of AI and How its Applied
- The Myth of the Pretrained Model
