Automating Legal Document Extraction and Review

Over the last several years, the legal and regulatory environment has become that much more complex, while businesses are transforming at rapid speeds. That means that law departments are under more pressure than ever to manage rising compliance and general business risks, protect and secure data and information, unlock new value for clients and businesses, and keep costs under control with the same or fewer resources. NLP for Legal enables the extraction of information from unstructured legal text, allowing legal teams to annotate documents and create machine learning models to automate data extraction from content across legal domains. This automation through NLP and ML in turn allows legal teams to turn attention to higher value activities.

Join this session to understand the complexities in the legal domain and how NLP and ML are helping automate legal workflows such as document extraction and review.
