IBM Scientist Zhong Su: Using Cognitive Computing to Compare Legal Contracts


My name is Zhong Su I work in IBM Research-China in Beijing. Will help the people, legal professions to go through the content and then help them to improve their efficiency. Like, uh, you know save the people to read, you know, manually go through all the contracts people signed before, and then if they want to compare with the history of contract like, you know, a hundred document that is impossible. If one company acquired another company, the legal professionals – the lawyers – need to review hundreds of thousands of the contracts. The lawyer can, you know, just go through the checklist of the system generated and just click yes or no, and then finish all the tasks. The system can read the content and then to to automatically tack the information so this is actually like the people who actually highlight some things right. Just like the machine to go read the content and highlight those things you need to pay attention to. For example, I will input my standard contract in the left side and I click a button to compare all of the contract in the repositories. And then the system will generate kind of report So firstly, we would like to go through all the content. The system to go through the format and identify the clause – bring the clause more context information so machine can automatically annotate the documents, like the name, the products, the time, the clause of the, you know, legal terms and then we can do that matching, we can do the compilation, can do the search, can do any of the things we want to do. I think in the future in the cognitive computing area so machines can work with people to go to a level that people and machine cannot do that by themselves.
