Generative AI in three perspective

Part one

Discovering the Tangible Impact of Generative AI: Unveiling Business Insights

Harnessing the power of Generative AI through ChatGPT unveils its wide-ranging capabilities, with application in business becoming a matter of timing rather than possibility. The potential annual economic impact, rivaling the GDP of the UK, underscores its significance.

Exploring data-driven value creation and the pivotal role of Generative AI. Simple use cases, like enhancing customer insights on web pages, contrast with intricate tasks such as gauging statement trustworthiness. Ignoring this potential bears a steep cost across all scenarios. See how value is generated from data and how Generative AI contributes.

Part two
Bridging Language and Computation: The Building Blocks of Generative AI and Large Language Models

Generative AI has taken over the world by storm. Opinions about its future range from utopian to dystopian - or maybe it is just business as usual? To cut through the noise, it’s instructive to get an understanding of the intrinsics and ramifications of these models.

We explore the step-by-step mechanics of transformers and how their outputs are used in different tasks like generation and classification. Crucially, learn about real-world Large Language Models like GPT and LLaMA and how they redefine both the value of as well as the interaction with polystructured data.

Part three Generative AI applied in the Legal Context – a Game Changer for Lawyers

Getting to the bottom of things in legal cases has never been easier. Herlock allows lawyers to engage in a dialogue with their case files, providing answers in natural language, establishing connections between different pieces of information, and summarizing facts.

Throughout this process, Herlock always cites the underlying sources, provides links to additional information and analyses. The timeline extracts automatically the events in a case and sorts them chronologically – a cumbersome task previously done manually. More insights in less time for lawyers and their clients.
