'Minority report' AI Co. Intraspexion Gains Deep Learning Patents

On September 13, 2017, the Artificial Lawyer blog reported on Intraspexion’s newly granted patent portfolio.


USPTO Grants Intraspexion a Portfolio of 7 patents

On September 13, 2017, we announced that the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office had granted and issued seven Deep Learning software system Patents assigned to Intraspexion. Six patents are for identifying general or specific risks, e.g., litigation and medical risks, and providing an early warning. One patent is for identifying financial advantages to take and providing notice. The patent family is notable in that Deep Learning is the most powerful and popular emerging branch of artificial intelligence.


Why Intraspexion's First Patent was Granted in less than four months

On July 22, 2017, Jeff Cox (Citibank AVP - Legal Operations) posted on LinkedIn his local bar association article, entitled, “Practice Tips for Tampa Bay Attorneys - Making Your Client Special.” Cox explains why the USPTO granted Intraspexion’s patent for using “deep learning” to identify risk and provide early warning and issued U.S. Pat. no. 9,552,548 in less than four months.

Intraspexion listed in an AI top 10

On March 16, 2017, NewGenApps listed Intraspexion No. 8 in this article, "10 Artificial Intelligence Tools You Can Use." 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. Intraspexion runs in the background and scans your company’s internal emails daily and flags significant litigation risks for further review. With Intraspexion the counselor may proactively avoid costly litigation and conduct privileged investigations." (Boldface added.)


Intraspexion recognized for PREDICTING LITIGATION

On March 9, 2017, Joe Dysart featured Intraspexion in this article about deep learning applications. The article, titled “Predicting Lawsuits,” was published in Communications of the ACM, the venerable association for computing machinery. 



In the March 2017 issue of the ACC Legal Ops Observer, in an article entitled “AI for Legal Ops and Corporate Counsel - The First Wave,” Jeff Cox (AVP-Legal Ops at Citigroup) featured Intraspexion and wrote, “Intraspexion is the ‘Minority Report’ of litigation.” 

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.”
