AI Whispering Digital Co-Counsel for Any Litigation

Are you adequately prepared for your next litigation?  Going into court with an army of Co-Counsel making you feel more confident, more prepared?  Make sure you bring along the AI Whispering Digital Co-Counsel.  Co-Counsel that doesn’t break a sweat, get nervous, and is always prepared.  He even takes the opportunity to learn while on the job, machine learning.

The whispering digital agent for advising litigators “just-in-time” rebuttal citing historical precedence, for example.  Digital Co-Counsel analyzes the dialog within the courtroom to identify ‘goals’, the intent of the conversation(s).  The Digital Co-Counsel identifies the current workflow, which may be identified as Cross or Direct examination, Opening Statement, and Closing Argument.

Realtime observation of a court case and advice based on:
  • Observed dialog interactions between all parties involved in the case, such as opposing counsel,  witnesses, subject matter experts, may trigger “guidance” from the Digital Co-Counsel based on a compound of utterances, and identified workflow.
  • Court case evidence submitted may be digitized, and analyzed based on a [predetermined]combination of identified attributes of submitted evidence.  This evidence, in turn, may be rebutted, by counter arguments, alternate ‘perspectives’ or present “evidence” to rebut
  • The introduction of ‘bias’ toward the opposing council.**

Implementation of the Digital Co-Council may be through a Smartphone application, and use a bluetooth throughout the case.

Privacy, Eye Movement Technology, Twitter and Advertising

As I was reading my stream of tweets my brain started to wander and think about that new eye movement technology Samsung, and LG are/will utilize to change smartphone screens with your eye movements.  As I looked at words in the tweets, the idea occured to me that privacy laws will need to accommodate a new potential frontier in advertising, eye focus advertising.   If a person looks at a word in a tweet for 3 seconds,  all of that eye focus data, how a person of a certain demographic looks at a particular word, how long, possibly their facial expression,  index and abstract that information,  it could give the concept of advertising a whole new meaning.  Big marketing is watching what you’re watching.   Brave New World.

Social Networks, Ring Fencing Data, and Regional Data Centers

I worked on a project where if there was communication between two parties within the same country not intended for ‘out of country’ consumption, that data needed to be housed in local DCs (Data Centers) for regulatory purposes. It occurs to me that many social networks have centralized data centers. What if on Twitter two people within the same country DM each other, direct message, regarding confidential financial information and that data is routed cross boarders and stored in a central location, say, in the U.S., would that social network be out of compliance with local statues regardless of if the user agreed to the social networks terms. Couldn’t the social networks at least be charged with aiding these potential criminals of avoiding their local country laws? I think this was bought up before but it reoccurred to me with a tweet I saw, Googles floating data center and virtual data center in North Carolina.
