Innovate or Die Trying: From the Mind of a World-Renowned Hacker
If you've been to an ILTACON keynote presentation before, you know we've featured futurists. To start off our 40th ILTACON, we're turning up the dial with a futurist, inventor and notorious hacker who has a unique view into breaking and building new technologies, which leads to new approaches to solving world problems. Pablos works on projects that assimilate new technologies and make wild ideas more practical. What are computers yet to accomplish? What advancements will legal technology experience? ILTA members are concerned with disruption by legal startups and the need for innovation. Pablos will help us think differently about how we could solve some of our legal technology challenges.

Transforming the Business of Law with Cognitive Computing: Watson Legal
“Artificial intelligence” (AI) is arguably an overused label for a vast array of technologies that vary in features, complexity and benefits. What is AI, and how do you know if you have a problem it can solve? Brian Kuhn, founder of IBM Watson Legal, will address key misconceptions around artificial intelligence and cognitive computing and share insights from business-of-law use case workshops IBM conducted with corporate legal departments and law firms over the last two years. Brian will identify patterns of customer interest and success related to the application of artificial intelligence and cognitive computing to the legal domain, and he'll discuss the top facts everyone needs to know about what AI can — and can’t — do.
