iManage has rolled out a virtual Artificial Intelligence University (AIU) as an adjunct to its customer on-site model. Legal and financial services professionals can participate in project-driven, best-practice remote AI workshops that use their own, real-world data to address specific business issues – even amidst the disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
AIU has received plaudits from iManage’s customers such as Paul Hastings, where Nikki Shaver, managing director of innovation and knowledge said: “Participating in AIU was a huge win for us. We immediately saw the impact AI would have in surfacing information we need and allowing us to action it to save time, money and frustration. The workshop gave us deep insight into how to train the algorithm effectively for the best possible effect. And, very quickly, more opportunities came to light as to how AI could augment our business in the longer term.”
It comes as law firms begin to adjust to remote working, with many questioning whether working practices will ever return to the way they were before the COVID19 outbreak. However firms have put many new projects on ice and it’s good to see vendors making it easier for firms to continue building their internal knowledge and training.
Nick Thomson, general manager at iManage RAVN said: “We’ve found the best way to ensure client success is to educate and build up experience inside the firm about how AI works and how to apply it to a broad spectrum of business problems.”
