Dentons is using a robot for legal research in Canada Kirill__M
Like other more sophisticated robots, Ross takes feedback from his environment and becomes more effective by assimilating the feedback. Arthur Arruda, a student who developed the robot and who is now chief executive of Ross Intelligence, said: 'what we are seeing is Ross grasping and understanding legal concepts and learning based on the questions and also getting user feedback. … Just like a human, it’s getting its experience in a law firm and being able to learn and get better.'
Ross is now working in bankruptcy law, but the plan is to introduce him to other areas in future. Mr Arruda does not expect Ross to work on complex legal problems but expects him to be able to perform basic legal research more cost-effectively than human legal assistants.
