It is only natural that in our STEM-based edition we feature this CODEX interview with Nick Brestoff, 69, the founder and CEO of Intraspexion offering “Preventive Law with AI”. Brestoff is an engineer-turned-lawyer whose company is addressing the painful problem that bedevils corporate legal departments: the frequency and cost of litigation. “Intraspexion provides an early warning of specific types of possible litigation to in-house legal staff”. His advice to other tech entrepreneurs: “Find the pain to address first. Find the return on investment for your vision. Then, have the courage to fight off the depressing occasions.”

On September 13, 2017, we announced (in our first press release) that the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office had granted and issued seven Deep Learning software system Patents assigned to Intraspexion. The core patent is U.S. Pat. No. 9,552,548 to Brestoff for "Using Classified Text and Deep Learning Algorithms to Identify Risk and Provide Early Warning." Six patents are for identifying general or specific risks, e.g., litigation and medical risks, and providing an early warning. Of these, the patent for medical risk is notable. Another notable patent is for identifying financial advantages to take (as opposed to risks to avoid) and providing notice. Each patent includes Deep Learning as a system element. Deep Learning is the most powerful and popular emerging branch of artificial intelligence.

NewGenApps wrote: "Intraspexion is regarded as an early warning system to prevent potential litigation . It is based on the concept of deep learning where algorithms are used to help alert corporate counsel to litigation risks much before they have to handle the lawsuit.

In addition, he wrote this: “In looking for an apt analogy to describe how AI solves the first prong of the problem, Brestoff puts it best: ‘If Big Data is a lake, in-house legal teams are in the boat and can see only the surface. To catch a fish (either an advantage to take or risk to avoid), you need a fishing rod. That’s what Deep Learning is to Big Data.’ Rather than waiting for when risk ‘metastasizes into a lawsuit,’ Brestoff aims to provide legal departments with the tools to move from managing risk to avoiding risk.”
