The AI Lawyer | Jerry Ting from Evisort

Reviewing contracts is an expensive, time consuming, tedious, though highly necessary task. A notorious contract dispute in Maine resulted in a $5 million settlement—all because of a missing comma.

The importance of the work cannot be overstated, but when you’re the one parsing those commas, you can start to wonder if there isn’t a better way. As a lawyer in Boston, Jerry Ting found himself in this very position when he spoke with a client at MIT about the possibility of using artificial intelligence to make his life easier.

The result was Evisort, a technology startup that automates contract management, saving companies time and money, and saving the lawyers their sanity.

On this edition of UpTech Report, Jerry tells us more about the particulars of contract management issues and how he’s leveraged AI to address those complex needs.
