AI seems to be on the tips of everyone's tongues. With such a complex and new technology, it's easy to get drawn into the hype and hysteria. The sad but unfortunate reality is that not many people really understand what AI is, nor do they know how to speak about it or think about its applications in the legal sector. We want to change that. AI has already started to penetrate our personal lives and it is only a matter of time before it becomes ubiquitous in our professional lives. AI is coming and we should embrace this new technology in a posture of knowledge and transparency instead of ignorance and hype. This article defines what AI is, explores how to think about AI, and shows how it can be applied in the legal industry.
