The Main Course: 5 Things You Should Know this Week
Law Firms Should Build Digital Products: I enjoyed this piece by Mike Cappucci of Foundation Lab (nb: I've been thinking about writing a "how to" guide on building legal products, so if this is a topic you know about, or are interested in, please email me - I'd like to chat).
The Golden Age of the Legal Entrepreneur: a terrific piece by Mark Cohen.
The Future of (Physical) Legal Workplaces: new technologies will re-orient the way legal professionals workspaces look and feel.
Cleveland Legal Aid's Data Driven Approach to A2J: nice to see a study measuring how effective an intervention is.
Interview with Richard Tromans (aka Artificial Lawyer): his twitter feed is among the best for legal tech, so it's interesting to read a long form interview of him (done by another favorite author, David Curle, of the Legal Executive Institute)
When AI Cheats To Win: turns out that if you train a computer to win, it won't just look to be better at making traditional moves; it'll look for ways to bend the rules to win, too (full academic paper here in PDF form).
