The first law firm to hire a Watson-based "robot" lawyer

Not just any firm but BigLaw superpower Baker & Hostetler will be using an IBM Watson-based computer program called ROSS (no, that's not an acronym for anything) in its bankruptcy practice. How does it work?  According to the informational video below: "You ask questions in plain English, as you would a colleague, and ROSS then reads through the entire body of law and returns a cited answer and topical readings from legislation, case law and secondary sources to get you up-to-speed quickly. ROSS also monitors the law around the clock to notify you of new court decisions that can affect your case.” 

 Forbes Magazine has the full story here at Meet Ross, the World's First Robot Lawyer via Futurism.
