Legal Skies Podcast Episode on New AI Classification System

The most recent episode on Legal Skies, a podcast produced by the Law Society of Saskatchewan, is about the use of artificial intelligence to classify legal information:

"In the latest episode of Legal Skies, we speak to guests Alan Kilpatrick, Co-Director of Legal Resources at the Law Society of Saskatchewan, and Sarah Sutherland, Director of Programs and Projects at CanLII, about artificial intelligence (AI) and legal information."

"Alan and Sarah discuss a recent project where forty years’ worth of Law Society case law subject headings were used to train CanLII’s ground-breaking AI machine learning algorithm. As a result of this training, the self-learning algorithm is now capable of independently generating subject classification headings for Saskatchewan case law. This exciting project has major ramifications for access to justice and legal innovation right across Canada."

Note: as of October 12, 2021 Sarah Sutherland is President and CEO of CanLII.
