Day 2 @ IACCM Americas Conference 2017 – AI Contract Management
13th October 2017

“The whiskey is strong, but the meat is rotten”… This morning’s session on Artificial Intelligence at IACCM America’s – Toronto reminded us all of how far AI has come – from the days of room sized computers translating Russian (and poorly by some measure) to today’s near perfect real-time translation on smart phones. The future of AI to improve and streamline the contracting process is about complementing human knowledge and judgement not replacing it. And for those of you scratching your head – the quote is the circa 1962 machine translation from English to Russian and back to English of “The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak”. Cheers!
