vLex Introduced Vincent, its New AI Powered Research Tool

Last week, international legal research vendor vLex introduced its new research tool powered by AI, Vincent. Vincent works much like CARA from Casetext, EVA from Ross Intelligence, and Clerk from Judicata. Vincent allows users to upload a brief, court opinion, or other legal document for analysis. The system looks at the language used and any citations within the document to find related materials including cases, statutes, secondary sources, and more. Vincent is currently in its beta testing phase and use is by invitation only. One of the unique features of Vincent is that it can recognize documents in both English and Spanish, and provides results from 9 different countries including the U.S., Mexico, Spain, Chile, Colombia, and Canada. There are plans to increase the number of countries included in the future. vLex is making a push into the U.S. market, where it has previously been perceived as a legal resource for foreign law. https://blog.vlex.com/introducing-vincent-the-first-intelligent-legal-research-assistant-of-its-kind-bf14b00a3152 

Fastcase Expands into Original Works by Launching Full Court Press, a New Print and Digital Imprint

On November 2, 2017, Fastcase launched its new publishing arm, under the imprint Full Court Press. The inaugural publication offered under Full Court Press is RAIL: The Journal of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence & Law, and it is billed as “a multimedia offering, available in print, as an eBook, in audio, and exclusively within the Fastcase legal research application.”

According to CEO Ed Walters, the new imprint is “like Netflix for legal publishing,” noting that it is designed to improve the existing Fastcase platform by “adding our own original series through Full Court Press. RAIL is our first of many offerings, including legal treatises, deskbooks, forms, checklists, and workflow tools. We’re just getting started.”

The complete Fastcase press release is available here.
