Cognitive computing and natural language processing technology streamlines legal research for AmLaw 100 law firms;
BakerHostetler recognized as early adopter of the ROSS platform
ROSS Intelligence is proud to announce that AmLaw100 law firm BakerHostetler has agreed to retain use of ROSS Intelligence’s artificial intelligence legal research product, ROSS. ROSS Intelligence Co-Founder Andrew Arruda officially announced the partnership at Vanderbilt Law School’s “Watson, Esq.” conference in Nashville, Tennessee in April. BakerHostetler will license ROSS for use in its Bankruptcy, Restructuring and Creditors’ Rights team.
The ROSS platform is built upon Watson, IBM’s cognitive computer. With the support of Watson’s cognitive computing and natural language processing capabilities, lawyers ask ROSS their research question in natural language, as they would a person, then ROSS reads through the law, gathers evidence, draws inferences and returns highly relevant, evidence-based candidate answers. ROSS also monitors the law around the clock to notify users of new court decisions that can affect a case. The program continually learns from the lawyers who use it to bring back better results each time.
“At BakerHostetler, we believe that emerging technologies like cognitive computing and other forms of machine learning can help enhance the services we deliver to our clients,” said Bob Craig, Chief Information Officer. “We are proud to team up with innovators like ROSS and we will continue to explore these cutting-edge technologies as they develop.”
“BakerHostetler’s commitment to the future of the legal practice and ensuring they continue to deliver the highest level of value to their clients completely aligns with our vision at ROSS Intelligence,” said Andrew Arruda, CEO/Cofounder. “BakerHostetler has been using ROSS since the first days of its deployment and we are proud to partner with a true leader in the industry as we continue to develop additional AI legal assistants.”
