Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

IBM Fellow and Chief Architect Watson Compare & Comply at IBM, Dr. Shivakumar Vaithyanathan, is coming to DU!

Dr. Vaithyanathan joins us to discuss Legal Language Understanding: the problem of building AI software to understand Legal Documents, with a focus on Business Contracts. The lecture will explore:
-The definition of what it means to understand contracts and the challenges in obtaining meaningful labeled data to learn and evaluate models.
-Linguistics Models with the intention to capture the linguistic structures that determine the semantics of Contracts
-The performance of Deep Learning Models on the same Contracts data.
-Dr. Vaithyanathan’s initial observations from his exploration on trying to understand what Deep Learning Models learn vis-a-vis
Linguistics Models, for the task of Legal Language Understanding.

The event is free and open to the Denver Community. Discussion from 12:00-1:00 and lunch is served at 1:00.
