ChatGPT in the Legal Industry: AI Redefines Human-Machine Interaction

A type of Artificial Intelligence known as ChatGPT was developed in November 2022. The recent innovation, which reached 1 million users in just 5 days has thrown the world into Chaos.

“ChatGPT is the technology that is developing at the fastest rate the world has ever seen.”

How does ChatGPT work?

The beauty of any Artificial Intelligence (AI) system is it can be trained using the vast amounts of data it generates such as technological advancements, research findings and global societal norms up to that point. This means that it learns how things work, what technologies have been materialized, how much information has been derived from the books and research papers and how people influence with it. Given the sheer amount of data available, it is practicable to have a system that combines all of the world’s knowledge into a single computer and uses it to train an AI model. Such a framework would be profoundly intelligent and ready to settle on informed choices on the broadest conceivable scope of data. However, significant resources and technological advancement would be required to achieve this level of integration and processing power.

While Chat Bots are not a new technology, the performance of ChatGPT is so good that perhaps for the first time such a technology reduces the gap between Human-machine generated responses. So much so that a reader may find it difficult to conclude whether the response was generated by a Human or a Machine. This is also known as the well-known Turing test, which was created to determine whether a machine is intelligent or artificially intelligent. The test was straightforward: Can a Human read and determine whether the text was produced by a machine or by a Human? ChatGPT is becoming more and more of a tool that meets the Turing criteria.

In what ways can you apply ChatGPT to your own Life?

First and foremost, you must visit chat.openai.com in order to use ChatGPT. After that, it will let you set up an account. The examples you can use will be displayed on the screen when you start a new Chat. You can see all the previously asked questions in the left corner. ChatGPT remembers what the user said earlier in the conversation. It is also taught to decline requests that are not appropriate. You can even give an answer a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to let it know if it is correct or not, which will eventually be incorporated into the training program and it will continue to get smarter.

Some specific ways in which ChatGPT can benefit the Legal Industry:

ChatGPT has the potential to significantly impact the legal industry by providing assistance in various areas.

Legal research:

Regardless of the situation, AI’s versatility can ensure that it will be able to better adapt to the future, continue to offer free proficient judgment and focus on significant, complex and crucial work for their clients.

Therefore, the question now arises, if this is a potent tool that has emerged, “Is your job at risk?”

The simple answer to that is, “If you know how to ask questions, the machine will not replace you; it will exist because of you.”
