Real law firm hires ‘Artificially Intelligent Attorney’ robot


The latest hotshot lawyer at the law firm BakerHostetler never passed the bar exam or even attended law school. But the firm still trusts their newest hire, ROSS, to help with its bankruptcy practice. That’s because ROSS isn’t a flesh-and-blood lawyer at all—rather, it is the world’s first artificially intelligent attorney.

Futurism reports that ROSS the robot lawyer was built on IBM’s cognitive computer Watson and functions like a legal assistant who has memorized nearly every case in legal history. “ROSS is a digital legal expert that helps you power through your legal research,” the website explains. “You ask your questions in plain English, as you would a colleague, and ROSS then reads through the entire body of law and returns a cited answer and topical readings from legislation, case law and secondary sources to get you up-to-speed quickly. In addition, ROSS monitors the law around the clock to notify you of new court decisions that can affect your case.”
