Grab moves to offer digital insurance services in Southeast Asia

Grab is Southeast Asia’s top ride-hailing firm, thanks in no small part to its acquisition of Uber’s local business last year, but the company also houses an ambitious fintech arm, too. That just added another vertical to its business after Grab announced it is teaming up with China’s ZhongAn to introduce insurance. Grab and ZhongAn International, the international arm of the Chinese insurance giant, said today they will create a joint venture that will provide digital insurance services acro...

LawNext Episode 25: Using AI to Enhance Virtual Receptionists, with Smith.ai

 What do you get if you combine a virtual receptionist service with artificial intelligence? Spoiler alert: The answer is not robots answering the phone. Rather, the folks at Smith.ai say the combination results in a superior receptionist service for both live calls and website chat. By incorporating AI, they say, their service continually gets smarter as it comes to know your practice and your clients.

Is Google programmed to teach us not to write "Democrat Party"?!

In a post earlier this morning, I noticed the congressional Democrats have something called "New Democrat Coalition" and wondered why they accepted using "Democrat" like that when they adamantly oppose "Democrat Party." It's a coalition of Democrats, so Democrat Coalition is fine grammatically. You can use a noun as an adjective when it makes sense. It's the Optimist Club, not the Optimistic Club. Why rankle at "Democrat Party"? And why think you're insulting them by calling it the "Democrat Par...

Empirical SCOTUS: Which Supreme Court cases are generating the most interest?

This Supreme Court term, like the past several before it, has been slow out of the gates. It also marks another term with a new justice – this time Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The justices often find consensus both early on in a term and after a largescale change, defining or redefining their jurisprudential boundaries only later. The justices have released five decisions in argued cases so far, all of them free even from concurrences. This is a new high count for unanimous decisions without a conc...

AT&T is finally revealing its new tools to reinvent the way TV ads are sold — but it needs other networks to play along

AT&T is introducing new data tools that allow advertisers to pull together set-top box data, stats from Turner and data from Xandr, its ad and analytics division. Xandr wants other networks and publishers to adopt its technology, including Open A.P., a consortium between Viacom, Turner, NBCUniversal and Fox that lets advertisers create cross-network targeting segments. However, both NBCUniversal and Viacom have their own data tools for advertisers. Buyers say they want to see networks work tog...

LawNext Episode 24: Making Legal Research Better, with Judicata Founder Itai Gurari

With Judicata, Itai Gurari believes he has built a better legal research platform. A lawyer and computer scientist, his approach to designing a legal research engine was to first “map the legal genome” — that is, map the law with extreme accuracy and granularity. The result is a research engine that returns the best results the fastest, he says. Gurari and his company also built Clerk, a tool that analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of legal briefs — like moneyball for motions, he says. “...

2H 2018 Quick Links, Part 3 (Keyword Advertising)

What Attorneys Need to Know About Online Reputation Management

Reputation is everything for attorneys. A good one gets you more clients through referrals; a bad one pretty much dooms your practice. So it’s no surprise that attorneys tend to pay close attention to cultivating a good reputation as effective, ethical counselors. But is all your hard work toward that goal reflected in your online reputation? What do prospects see when they type your name into a search engine? If it’s not much, that can often be as harmful as something negative. The infographic ...

Open Access for Law Book Content

It was in my role as a director of Dunedin Academic Press that recently and with some trepidation, I attended a series of workshops on open access (OA) in relation to scholarly monographs. Issues surrounding open access, as they apply to the academic journals market are now substantially rehearsed but they are less so in relation to books and the various markets for them. While most of the discussion and progress made thus far is in the academic market and primarily in such fields as humanities ...

Briefly: Tony Mauro reports at Law.com that “Justice Samuel Alito Jr., who until now recused himself in a pending copyright case, Rimini Street Inc. v.

Public Records: Court Access Program for Illinois

Does someone here know where I can find what I'm lo...
