Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Law

In November 2022, the advent of OpenAI's ChatGPT 3.5 marked a transformative chapter in the unfolding story of artificial intelligence. These large language models (LLMs) have shattered previous limitations on text generation, rivaling human output in both quality and efficiency. The subsequent release of ChatGPT 4.0 in March 2023 further amplified this impact, setting new benchmarks in text generation and AI capabilities. This leap in AI capabilities isn't just academic—it's causing real disruption across multiple industries, prompting a wholesale reevaluation of traditional business practices. For the legal profession, this disruption is far from theoretical; it's an evolving reality.

As we navigate this dynamic landscape, several key issues come to the forefront, each worthy of its own focused exploration. For those new to the field or seeking a refresher, our Introduction to Artificial Intelligence lays the foundational knowledge. Understanding the mechanics behind these advancements is equally critical, and our page on Training Generative AIs delves into some of these technical aspects. Of course, no technology is without its challenges; our section on Hallucinations examines the limitations and inaccuracies that can arise. For those interested in protecting AI related inventions, we provide in-depth analyses on Artificial Intelligence Patents. In addition, as disputes involve artificial intelligence become more common, we are tracking and summarizing AI Litigation. Each of these pages serves as a gateway to comprehending the complex relationship between artificial intelligence and the law.

The discussion of Artificial Intelligence and the Law is divided into the following sections:
