Four short months ago, OpenAI released a new AI program called ChatGPT which single-handedly captured the world’s imagination. Less than two weeks ago, the company took a step further, releasing version 4.0 which made the algorithm even smarter. No longer limited to analyzing text, ChatGPT can now describe and reason from images and audio too.

Across the globe, millions of people started asking ChatGPT to answer questions, write term papers and even create poems in Pirate Speak (Arrrgh). Lawyers also jumped on board, challenging ChatGPT to explain complex legal concepts, analyze contracts and even tag ediscovery documents.

What is this new technology and how might it affect ediscovery professionals? Join us for a fascinating look at ChatGPT’s capabilities along with a candid discussion of its limitations. Learn about groundbreaking research suggesting that ChatGPT (actually its underlying algorithm called GPT) may not only help make ediscovery more efficient but actually replace ediscovery review teams altogether. The potential here is to greatly reduce ediscovery costs while helping legal professionals find relevant information.

ChatGPT has already passed the bar with a 90% ranking along with a Wharton MBA test and a three-day national medical licensing certification. Don’t miss this groundbreaking program on where it will go next.
