ChatGPT: Should Ediscovery Lawyers be Nervous?

In just eight short weeks, a new AI program called ChatGPT has captured the world’s imagination. From Silicon Valley to London, Tokyo, Sydney and beyond, millions of people have started asking ChatGPT to answer questions, write term papers and even create poems in Pirate Speak (Arrrgh). Lawyers have also jumped on board, asking ChatGPT to explain complex legal concepts, analyze contracts and even tag ediscovery documents.

What is this new technology and how might it affect ediscovery professionals? Join us for a fascinating look at ChatGPT’s capabilities along with a candid discussion of its limitations. Learn about groundbreaking research suggesting that ChatGPT (actually its underlying algorithm called GPT) may not only help make ediscovery more efficient but actually replace ediscovery review teams altogether. Both time and cost savings could improve over human review by several orders of magnitude.

ChatGPT has already passed a Wharton MBA test, a three-day national medical licensing certification and even a state bar. Should ediscovery lawyers be nervous about ChatGPT? Tune in and find out.
