Datascience meetup on Legaltech

 

We had in total 175 people registered for S05E03 meetup of the #datascience community of Brussels. 3 legaltech companies demonstrated how they are using datascience to offer better legal services.

Our speakers explained that the data in the legal industry is mainly words and explained us their approach to process vast amounts of unstructured data through Natural Language Processing techniques (NLP).

The event was held in the clubhouse of the AI & Datascience community at DigitYser on February 7th, 2019. Like always it started with a happy hour at 18:00. All presentations were recorded by Ricardo head of the technical team of DigitYser and made available on our different channels. YoutubeTwitter – Facebook.
