Week 3 Introduction

We'll focus on legal reasoning, training data for the legal demand, legal learning, and government in this week.
Hello everybody and welcome to week 3 of the AI for legal professionals course. This is part two of a two part series course on AI for legal professionals. In this part, we focus on tools. Part one and part two are separate from each other, you don’t need part one to study part two. you don’t need part one to study part two. Week three so what will we be learning? There are four distinct parts. We’ll talk about legal reasoning, training data for the legal demand, legal learning, and government. And the first part, legal reasoning, we’ll focus on deontic logic and artificial agents. So this is kind of a discussion on deontic logic is not ethics, but it’s the logic of ethics.
So we need to train presumably robots and artificial agents how to do the right things. So we need to reduce this kind of do the right thing language, into language that symbolic that can be read by computers machines. You can get mathematical so to speak. Then on the legal reasoning side, we’ll talk about computational models of legal reasoning, and how that kind of relates to this idea of training artificial intelligence in ways, that are logical, that are ethical. Then we’ll talk about training data for the legal demand, talk about acquisition storage management of legal data, annotation, data augmentation techniques. And this being kind of a discussion about how we get to data from the world. Is it obtained ethically?
Is it obtained transparently? Is it maintained transparently? and these kind of similar ideas. Then we will talk about intelligent legal tutoring systems, and we’ll first talk about what in intelligent tutoring system is in the artificial intelligence context. Basically it’s a system that Taylor makes the learning specifically for one individual, rather than if you think about the traditional way of legal education, there is delivery by a teacher in a classroom upwards of a hundred students. But how can artificial intelligence help us with the delivery of legal education. Then we’ll wrap up week three with a discussion of government, and this is a discussion of e-Government, e-Democracy, e-Justice, any number of e. e-Participation, e-Voting.
And this idea of opened and linked data and the legal domain. Basically how government is becoming digitized, and how citizens can maintain participation in this digitized world, in the digitized government environment. So I hope you enjoy week three. Again it’s an honor to be learning with you in their course. Thanks everybody and please care

Welcome back! We are going to start our week 3. In this week, we’ll talk about legal reasoning, training data for the legal demand, legal learning, and government.
