The legal implications of generative AI

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Generative AI (GenAI) is a subset of artificial intelligence that creates content increasingly difficult to differentiate from what humans create. The GenAI text reads well, the photos look authentic, the audio files sound real, and the videos look convincing. Professor Maura Grossman, from the Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo, is principal at Maura Grossman Law, an eDiscovery law and consulting firm. She took the time to answers some common legal questions about GenAI, including explaining the challenges that AI poses to the justice system, and why lawyers and judges should be cautious about using AI to prepare briefs or opinions.
