CHALLENGES OF ChatGPT TO LAWYERS
Chat GPT database can only read information up to the year 2021; meaning legal information and events from 2021 to date are missing, hence GPT can not give an accurate answer in case a law or legal situation has changed after 2021.
Chat GPT may occasionally generate incorrect information and make errors; as we know for any bot/machine there will always be an error somewhere due to various reasons.
Chat GPT occasionally lacks human touch; a machine will always remain a machine without feelings/emotions and real human life experiences, something which we sometimes depend on in our legal practice to make decisions, etc.
EMBRACING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN THE LEGAL INDUSTRY WITH THE “HUMAN TOUCH”.
Lawyers everywhere must be ready to collaborate with AI technology as it will enable them to complete both straightforward and difficult legal jobs, boost revenue, and free up valuable time.
In as much as we may get addicted to AI technology and automation in the legal industry, we can’t let AI run everything, without human supervision, unless we are ready to be branded as AI-dominated lawyers.
Embracing AI in the legal industry will include giving it the “Human Touch” which will ensure the following;
Personalization; AI may not always be able to tailor its interactions in the same way that a human can. A human touch can assist customize the experience to the user’s particular needs and preferences.
Empathy; Since AI systems cannot feel emotions, they might not be able to show the same empathy and understanding that people do, a human touch can serve to convey this empathy
Creativity; where AI may not be as adept at coming up with original solutions to issues, a human touch can be helpful in generating new thoughts and perspectives.
Chat GPT is here to stay and hopefully this guide will help you into mastering the AI tool to your advantage.
Once you get started you will see the infinite ways you can utilize it as a lawyer depending on your needs at a given time.
It is high time for lawyers to embrace the new developments on AI technology and engage it to maximize your practice.
