Artificial Intelligence: Is It Really A Threat To Us Lawyers?

We have all seen the movies where the really smart people build a robot that they expect to be friendly and then unsurprisingly it tries to take over the world.

who keep telling me in article after article that any day this will happen to us lawyers.  We will be supplanted and irrelevant.  My favorite story is the one that says that 2000 hours of legal work can be done by a machine in 11 minutes, or something like that.

know there are other things, but so far the only new things I have seen are simply improvements on the same AI that has been around for many years and has the effect of eliminating rote, drudge, miserable, depressing, and cruddy work from lawyers.

Okay, let me end with this.  I am dumb as a post when it comes to technology.  People make fun of me all the time.  Perhaps I am missing something.  If so, I beg you to let me know.  Just shoot me an email.  I will be eternally grateful.

During a flood, these drones can help identify water contamination

Across the country, solar panels are soaking up sun rays and converting their energy into electricity, but without a good handle on their locations and capabilities, these scattered and unpredictable power generators also create headaches.

Without thorough data, utility companies can’t plan their energy needs, solar installers don’t know the ideal areas for more panels and lawmakers can’t incentivize adoption of renewables.

Rather than a person laboriously teaching a computer to locate features of an image, their computer teaches itself using huge quantities of images.

Each tile contained 102,400 pixels, and the neural network classified each pixel in each tile, judging whether it was likely part of a solar panel, or not.

Once DeepSolar had identified a pixel that it recognized as a solar panel, the network could use that information in concert with the pixels located nearby to calculate the size of solar installations across the country.

Another surprising result, Rajagopal said, was that solar panel adoption was higher in areas of increasing average household income, until the average reached about $150,000 per year.

“It really shows which parts of the country are likely to have solar panels and which can gain from solar panels.” That, he said, is incredibly useful information for a wide range of people.

Utility managers could use the information to plan for their own power production in the short term (less on sunny days, more when heavy clouds block the sky).

In Germany, energy overloads due to the rapid adoption of renewables have spawned power surges and occasional increases in carbon emissions from fossil-fuel plants.

US intelligence community says quantum computing and AI pose an ’emerging threat’ to national security

It’s not often you can put nuclear weapons, terrorism and climate change on the same list as quantum computing, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, but the U.S. government believes all pose an “emerging threat”

While all can be used for good — to secure data, to survey a dangerous area or simply to save time and effort — the government says that all can have disastrous effects if used by an adversary.

The list of emerging threats also includes information operations — such as those purportedly carried out by adversarial nation states in the run up to recent elections — may engage in “advanced information operations campaigns that use social media, artificial intelligence, and data analytics to undermine the United States and its allies.”

conflict — defined as the area between war and peace — where weaker adversaries have learned how to seize territory and advance their agendas in ways not recognized as ‘war’
