Extract from Doug Austin’s article “What GPT-4 Thinks Will Get More Legal Professionals Embracing AI”
How can we get more legal professionals embracing AI? Let’s ask an AI algorithm! Here’s what Open AI’s GPT-4 thinks is holding them back and what will change that!
I’ve been “testing” (i.e., playing with) GPT-4 the past few days and decided to ask it a question about legal professionals and AI.
Below is the question I asked, followed by GPT-4’s answer (in blue, verbatim except for emphasis added for the numbered points). Here’s what GPT-4 thinks:
A lot of legal professionals still haven’t embraced the use AI and machine learning technologies. Why is that and what can be done to change it?
There are several reasons why some legal professionals have been slow to embrace AI and machine learning technologies in their practice, including:
- Lack of awareness and understanding: Many legal professionals may not be fully aware of the potential benefits of AI and machine learning technologies or how they can be applied in their practice. Additionally, the legal field is known for its conservative nature, which can make it slow to adopt new technologies.
- Perceived complexity: Some legal professionals may view AI and machine learning technologies as too complex or difficult to implement and integrate into their existing workflows.
