Technology is increasing the potential for what it means to deliver legal services every day. The proliferation of devices that produce data means that there is greater opportunity for understanding how previously untapped areas of the market interact with one another. The vastness of this data now means that even seemingly discounted pieces of information can be aggregated to great effect. For example, the comments from Yelp reviews can be used to more accurately predict which restaurants will have health code violations, and your interactions on social media can be used to help more accurately predict where crowds will form, emerging fashion trends, or even the spread of contagious disease.
This same potential exists in the legal industry. Last January, during the 2019 MIT Computational Law Course, one of the standout modules of the course focused on how information could be atomized, standardized, and configured to yield more dynamic possibilities beyond e-discovery. This session will provide an overview on the value of data and the ways that data might be used to push the limits of what people currently imagine as possible, discuss the strategies for building interoperable legal apps and services, and look at how this nascent technology could be optimized for future use cases.
