Abstract of talk

GPT-Legal (GPTL) is strategically poised to elevate the capabilities of LawNet, a widely endorsed platform that serves as the cornerstone for legal research for an impressive 75% of Singapore’s legal practitioners. This ambitious initiative is at the forefront of a transformative movement, leveraging cutting-edge generative AI to revolutionize the legal industry. GPTL transcends the limitations of generic AI models by offering bespoke solutions meticulously crafted to align with the intricate demands of legal experts. In a groundbreaking pilot with the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL), GPTL has showcased its potential to catalyze a paradigm shift across the legal sector, capitalizing on SAL’s expansive network and its rich compendium of legal content spanning diverse jurisdictions. With a laser focus on long text summarization, GPTL harnesses advanced chunking techniques alongside a robust large language model (LLM) equipped with an extended context window, ensuring summaries are not only exhaustive and logically structured but also resonate with the precision and eloquence characteristic of seasoned legal professionals. The AI’s adeptness at distilling complex judgement documents, ranging from a concise 20 to a voluminous 225 pages, into concise summaries is unparalleled. These summaries meticulously encapsulate case facts and judicial decisions, mirroring the analytical acumen and linguistic finesse expected in the legal field, thus upholding the highest standards of accuracy, fluency, and professional legal articulation.
