A Brighter, Balanced Future for AI and Law

This is a “big ideas” episode, part of our goal to bring out “big ambitious ideas about the future” as well as day to day concerns about ALSPs and legal services. 

Law professor Orly Lobel talks with host Mike Madison about her new book, The Equality Machine: Harnessing Digital Technology for a Brighter, More Inclusive Future, recently named one of the best books of 2022 by The Economist magazine. 

In the conversation and in the book, she talks about how scepticism about AI and robots can get overblown. Are they always uncontrollable, incomprehensible, privacy-eating systems? She argues no: in proper measure they have the power to do enormous good in the world.  Much of the book draws its argument from beyond law, so in this episode she focused on the specifics of the legal world, especially when it comes to access to justice and dispute resolution systems.

Make sure you tune in every Tuesday for everything legaltech, ALSP’s and law.
