Your lawyers are on their way!
We've frequently discussed the benefits and pitfalls of ChatGPT. It's only prudent to remind folks about the risks of "hallucinations" and the occasional lapses in accuracy that ChatGPT can encounter. It's no surprise that some "ingenious" lawyer already attempted to use it to cite case law and was caught on the spot when an astute judge had their staff cross-check the references. Those skeptical of ChatGPT are now laughing uproariously at this blunder. "I told you so", they say. And yes, it's absurd to ask ChatGPT to cite case law and to trust its references without double-checking the sources.

A long time ago, we’ve written about the best and worst use of AI when it comes to lawyers. If some of you recall, our original “Sleegal AI” is a ChatGPT style chatbot to help people find lawyers. Before we know it, AI Generated Content (“AIGC”) has become the hottest topic in 2023. With this in mind and deriving from our understanding of AI, legal tech and self-driving cars, what is ChatGPT good and bad at?Read more
When we talk to our potential customers in the field, especially the relatively new startups who are going through hypergrowth, we notice that there is a lot of misunderstanding and confusion about needing a procurement team at all. We have seen hyper-growth companies with a few thousand employees, some of which may even produce and sell hardware, who don’t have a procurement function at all. This is mind-boggling and very dangerous. Here are the common fallacies about whether and why a company needs procurement and our responses to them.Read more
