Wanted: Lawyers Who Understand AI

July 9, 2019, Wall Street Journal

Lindsey Tonsager is quoted in the Wall Street Journal regarding the initiative to increase artificial intelligence legal practices. Ms. Tonsager says data is the fuel that drives artificial intelligence, but it can come with legal restrictions. Companies acquiring datasets need to be sure their contracts give them the right to use the data to train algorithms. Regarding the ethics and biases of artificial intelligence, she adds “It’s more about making sure your product works well and doesn’t have damaging reputational results. I’m not an ethicist. I won’t tell them what’s right and wrong. What I can say is, ‘Here are the steps you can take to avoid overlooking something.’”
