ROSS Artificial Intelligence Improves Workflows
ROSS’s research improvements have already changed the day-to-day workflow for Matt and his colleagues. At first Matt found himself reminding his colleagues to use ROSS in their research. But now using ROSS has become second nature. “I had a colleague doing research, and he’d tell me about issues he had. I’d say ‘well, did you use ROSS?’ He would then log in while I was standing there, we would ask his question and ROSS would return answers that were clearer than anything he returned by using traditional legal research methods.”
Unbeknownst to Matt, after he and his colleague went through this experience on two separate occasions, his colleague, on the next occasion, used ROSS to track down a critical case that that they used to address a key issue involving the availability of punitive damages. When Matt asked his colleague if he used ROSS to vet the legal research question, his colleague responded by telling him, “Of course – ROSS is how I found the case.”
Matt provided concrete examples of how ROSS helped him the same way. “I was drafting a trial brief, summarizing the areas of law for different causes of action. I was going through our document management system and some of our templates to try to find some of the favorable law. But when I started asking the questions in ROSS, it brought up excellent responses in our jurisdiction. It probably saved me six hours.”
ROSS Improves in Real Time
In the short amount of time that Matt and his team have been on the system, he’s already witnessed the pace at which ROSS continues to improve. “I think that it's great that it's now already a different program with new features since we started our license. That's pretty cool in and of itself, and I think it speaks to the dedication of the ROSS team in continuing to enhance the product.”
The ROSS team is thrilled to bring on partners like DEMLP who are investing early in AI technology to increase the accuracy, timeliness and efficiency of their work. As Matt continues to incorporate ROSS into the firm’s day-to-day routine, we look forward to sharing additional details of how AI is transforming DEMLP’s practice.
