ACC Docket: “The explosive emergence of ChatGPT as a consumer tool has catapulted Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its subfield, natural language processing (NLP), to the technology stage. As AI and NLP continue to evolve, the use of AI-powered tools, such as the Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT), in the legal industry has become increasingly prevalent. Many lawyers are experimenting with AI and grappling with its applications to streamline practices and improve efficiency. While GPT and other AI-powered tools can potentially revolutionize aspects of the legal profession, it is important to consider the current limitations and potential pitfalls in implementing these technologies..
- Language processing and deep learning. Interdisciplinary advancements in machine learning models have achieved complex AI engines capable of generating human-like text.
- A stalwart administrative assistant. With its haste and ability to process large amounts of data, ChatGPT can be an excellent tool for drafting, proofreading, and research.
- Garbage in, garbage out. ChatGPT’s output is only as meaningful as its input, and users must take care in verifying the information they feed to, and extract from the model.
- Ethical implications. This nascent world of AI modeling raises questions in realms such as data privacy, intellectual property, and carbon emissions.”
