On June 17, the University of San Diego Law School will host the “Workshop on Legal Text, Document and Corpus Analytics,” aka LTDCA-2016,” colocated with the 15th Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies.
Recent improvements both in Human Language Technology (HLT) and in techniques for storage and rapid analysis of large data collections have created new opportunities for automated interpretation of legal text, improved access to statutory and regulatory rules, and greater insights into the structure and evolution of legal systems. These techniques hold promise for the courts, legal practitioners, scholars, and citizens alike. These advances have coincided with a rapid expansion of interest in automated processing and understanding of legal texts on the part of industry, government agencies, court personnel, and the public.
Legal Robot’s CEO, Dan Rubins, was honored to be invited to speak at the event.
