Marc Lauritsen’s new book, The Lawyer’s Guide to Working Smarter with Knowledge Tools (ABA 2010) at 64-65 lists several artificial intelligence topics. Those most applicable to law (not robotics, for example) pushed to me to find out which of them have a blog post here that discusses the topic (See my post of Jan. 28, 2007: take the very long view on legal AI.). Below are the legal-related ones.
- Logic programming
- Rule-based expert systems (See my post of March 27, 2005: software in England and Australia; March 24, 2005: document assembly hasn’t caught on; and Feb. 24, 2007: rules based document assembly.).
- Speech recognition (See my post of Feb. 23, 2008: dictation with 5 references).
- Natural language understanding
- Neural networks (See my post of April 7, 2006: invoice analysis software as a possibility; and Feb. 23, 2006: discovery software with neural network capabilities.).
- Machine learning (See my post of Feb. 17, 2008 #4: data mining application.).
- Fuzzy logic (See my post of April 5, 2009: fuzzy search tools; and March 23, 2006: knowledge management software and fuzzy logic.).
On a related point, at page 167 Marc mentions three document assembly packages that I did not cover in my recent metapost: Perfectus (www.perfectus.com), ActiveDocs (www.keylogix.com), and Pathagoras (www.pathagoras.com) (See my post of March 23, 2010: document assembly with 8 references and one metapost.).
