          Workshop: AI & Law - The Promise of New Legal Tools and Services in the Digital Age

          Within a very short span of time, legal analytics—the application of big data analysis methods within the field of the law – has moved from the margins of the legal profession into the mainstream. Underpinning this change in paradigm is the maturation of artificial intelligence technologies, and new legal applications based on natural language processing and machine learning have recently emerged that are set to transform the practice of the law. These tools and services, in particular, support conceptual legal information retrieval and predictive legal analysis by connecting computational models of legal reasoning directly with legal text.

          The global market for these applications, tools and services is characterised by the presence a number of dominant global players who drive technological innovation in the field, and is expected to witness an exceptionally high growth rate between now and 2022.  In Europe, however, the market for legal analytics services remains underserved, primarily a result of differences in national legal systems, and the plethora of official national languages, each requiring the deployment of different analytical methods and tools.

          The purpose of this workshop is to act as a forum for the critical exploration of emerging pan-European initiatives that seek to develop services and service portals to plug the gaps in the European market, whilst at the same time making legal analytics tools available to all – in particular to agents involved in normative processes. The workshop will be structured to comprise of mix of presentations and interactive elements that facilitate the exchange of experiences and ideas amongst participants; thereby providing insight into the basic concepts of “Legal Analytics” and comparing different approaches already available. One of the centrepieces of the discussion will be the project ManyLaws: EU-wide Enhanced Access to Big Open Legal Data.

          Workshop: The use of Visual Analytics along the predictive modelling process

          Standardized processes such as CRISP-DM have established themselves for guiding the development of predictive machine learning models. Apart from the actual model building step, humans with their intuition and domain knowledge play a crucial role in these processes for steps like data exploration, data cleansing, and model validation. This workshop shows specific examples from recent research results, how new methods from the field of Visual Analytics can reduce the effort and increase the quality of the resulting models. Using interactive live demos of specific use cases from the manufacturing and energy sectors, the presentation will cover:

          1. data exploration and preparation of large process data
          2. understanding and interpreting regression models with numerous inputs
          3. optimizing accuracy and interpretability of classification trees even by non-data scientists
          4. effective performance monitoring of numerous predictive models

          The participants of the workshop will thus get a hands-on introduction to the state-of-the-art in data visualization and visual analytics in the field of predictive modelling, and will get to learn new methods that are applicable to predictive modelling tasks in many domains.

          Workshop Lead: Harald Piringer, Head of Visual Analytics group - VRVis Zentrum für Virtual Reality und Visualisierung
