18th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law 2021 – International Workshop on AI for Understanding the Legal Business

On-Demand Webinar

Although most AI and machine learning (ML) research in the legal domain focuses on problems related to the practice of law, AILBIZ — the International Workshop on A.I. for Understanding the Legal Business — introduces the research community at International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law to a different aspect of interesting problems, primarily related to the business side of the legal practice. AILBiz intends to open a space for researchers — both experienced and newcomers — to participate in discussions, exchange ideas, and collaborate around a specific set of problems in which AI/ML solutions have the potential to drive profound transformation within this global multimillion-dollar industry.
