     AI & Law from a Data-Centric Perspective

Data-centric techniques are applicable both to extracting information latent in legal document collections and to finessing some of the central challenges confronting logical models, including the practical difficulties of formalizing legal rules in logic at scale and the mismatch between legal predicates and ordinary parlance. This talk surveys data-centric techniques and applications, distinguishes legal tasks amenable to these techniques from those requiring logic-based analysis, and describes the rapidly growing commercial interest in these techniques.
