More Kassi Burns Quotes From The Interview

“‘Human in the loop’ is a phrase that's used all the time. I personally don't like it. I really think it should be ‘AI in the loop.’’

“But those are still some of the same mechanisms; it still goes to data richness, how robust is your data set? What are you doing to train it on the back end? How are you going to refine it? What are you doing to validate the results?”

“The legal practice is focused on two things: the law and facts and how those facts intersect with the law to help decide an issue that's in dispute.”

“The algorithms we use tend to be LSI (Latent semantic indexing) algorithms. It creates a very robust constellation of concepts that are interconnected, not by literal words but by concepts.”

“It creates a concept-plus-service. If you're getting documents from the opposing party and you want to see what documents they have and you want a quick snapshot, you can run conceptual indices and get what we would call concept clusters. And it can drill down into layers of specificity.”

“I think that we're going to want the human created content because there is a sameness that occurs with Generative AI because it’s predicting what you want. When it comes to our music and visual arts, we want things that surprise us.”
