CaseCruncher Alpha chatbot’s work stands on the advanced neural networks. CaseCruncher could not only make conversations about legal issues, it was upgraded that way, that it can predict the outcomes of currently lasting proceedings.

The Next Web has revealed the recent experiment. Well-known and professional lawyers of London and CaseCruncher AI chatbot were asked to complete the sole task – they got 775 controversial payments cases of insurance.

Then they had to compete and find out which legal issues financial ombudsman will handle and give a verdict, and which of them will not get even a verdict.

The result they finally got was shocking. While layers’ managed to get 66.3% right answers, the AI chatbot predicted the correct verdict in 86.6% of cases.

CaseCruncher Alpha chatbot is a great example that chatbots can simplify the working process, though it’s not a brand-new example.
