This resource originated as a primary-source appendix for presentations on Generative AI we began delivering in December 2022. We are still going (700 slides and counting). We offer introductory presentations for larger audiences still getting up to speed. We partner with law firms on CLEs that address the many legal and regulatory considerations that add to complexity and impact strategy. We lead high-level conversations among informed stakeholders re real-world use cases. Feel free to reach out.

As the presentation has grown, so has the appendix, to the point where we’ve added both supplemental material (that is not in the presentation) and maintained historical materials (fallen out of the presentation given how quickly the topic moves). The resource is comprehensive in-so-far as it contains a primary source for every slide in the presentation. But we think a truly comprehensive resource that encompasses the vast and rapidly evolving subject of Generative AI would be impossible. We’re giving you a lot. But we would never pretend to be offering everything. Though if you see a glaring hole, feel free to reach out. We’re always looking to make this resource more valuable.

This is all completely free.

Yet we are consistently asked how LexFusion makes money. If you are not paying for the product, you are the product has become common sense. Fair enough.

We accelerate legal innovation. LexFusion curates promising legal innovation companies. We invest. They also pay us. We support strategy, product, sales, marketing, events, etc. For example, Macro joined LexFusion a year before their $9.3m seed round, led by Andreesen Horowitz. Similarly, Casetext joined LexFusion two years before their $650m cash acquisition by Thomson Reuters. While the primary credit always belongs to the founders and their teams (we identify and then accelerate winners), they, like our other members, will enthusiastically confirm that LexFusion played a material role in rapidly advancing their products and business.

Much of our value to our legal-innovation clients is premised on our unparalleled market listening. We frequently provide free presentations and consultations, absent any sales agenda, to law departments and law firms to foster conversations that augment our market insights. This is where the confusion sets in. Our customers (law depts/firms) are distinct from our clients (legal innovation companies). Because our customers don’t pay us, they want to know where the money comes from.

We regularly meet with ~500 law departments and ~300 law firms. LexFusion is, ultimately but not directly, compensated based on the value we derive from these interactions. For our business to be sustainable, the exchange of value must merit their scarce time over repeat interactions—hence the free content and consults. If you know us, you probably stopped reading already. If you don’t know us, we hope the depth of this free content and some testimonials from our friends are sufficient to establish are bona fides.

To the extent you are interested in an even deeper dive, Bill Henderson wrote a wonderful longform piece on our business model, which we followed up with an even longer piece on the centrality of trust to the LexFusion value proposition. We have yet to perfect our elevator pitch. But we do our best to always be transparent. Without building and maintaining trust, our business model crumbles. Our legal-innovation clients will cycle through—inherent in our model. Our sole enduring asset is our relationships with our customers. We are people centric, and live our motto “better together!”

Economists are rethinking their understanding of technology and labor as artificial intelligence (AI) raises concerns about job displacement. While previous waves of technology did not lead to mass unemployment, newer models acknowledge that technology can displace workers and lower wages. The impact on living standards depends on whether new jobs are created and whether workers have a say in technology's deployment. Economists generally view technological change as beneficial, but the extent of upheaval caused by AI remains uncertain.

The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) has found that OpenAI's ChatGPT does not meet EU data accuracy standards. While measures have been taken to address transparency, they are insufficient for data accuracy. The probabilistic nature of the system can lead to biased or false outputs, which users may perceive as accurate. OpenAI is required to implement appropriate measures to comply with GDPR and protect data subjects' rights. Investigations are ongoing, and a full report has not yet been published.

Generative AI tools may create more work for humans than they save, according to Peter Cappelli, a management professor at the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School. While these tools can help save time and boost productivity, the effort required to build and sustain large language models (LLMs) may outweigh the benefits. Additionally, many tasks may not require the use of AI when standard automation can suffice. Cappelli suggests that generative AI's most useful application is analyzing data to support decision-making processes.

Apple has announced plans to pull the Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 from store shelves in response to an import ban by the US International Trade Commission. The ban is a result of Apple infringing on patents for pulse oximetry technology made by Masimo. While Apple is trying to find a solution to avoid the ban, it may take some time to resolve the dispute. The ban only affects the Series 9 and Ultra 2 models in the US, and previous models with the blood oxygen sensor are not impacted.

Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, believes that an "energy breakthrough" such as nuclear fusion is necessary to address the energy demands of artificial intelligence (AI) and enable an AI revolution. The training of advanced AI models requires significant energy consumption and contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. Altman suggests that solutions like nuclear fusion and affordable solar energy can help meet the growing energy demand of AI. While Altman previously made cataclysmic claims about AI, he now believes that AI will have a lesser impact on the world and jobs than previously thought. He still anticipates the development of artificial general intelligence (AGI) in the near future but is less concerned about its disruptive effects. Altman also emphasizes the need for caution in relying on AI for life or death decisions.

OpenAI may have to defend against a defamation suit regarding ChatGPT's "hallucinations" after a judge denied OpenAI's motion to dismiss. The lawsuit was filed by a radio host, Mark Walters, who claimed that ChatGPT fabricated false statements about him. OpenAI argued that ChatGPT's output cannot be considered libel, but the court will now examine the case on its merits. The outcome of this case could have implications for ChatGPT's liability for its generated content.

Generative AI is transforming the way banks manage risk and compliance. It allows functions to move away from task-oriented activities and focus on strategic risk prevention. Gen AI can automate manual tasks, synthesize unstructured content, and improve risk transparency. It has applications in regulatory compliance, financial crime, credit risk, data analytics, cyber risk, and climate risk. Risk leaders should prioritize use cases based on impact, risk, and feasibility. Banks need to address new risk management and control measures, data and tech demands, and talent and operating-model requirements to effectively adopt gen AI.

The following strategies can you help you better understand your employees’ perspectives. Start by creating audience personas that map to key employee segments in your company. Then interview individual employees in each segment to get a sample perspective on typical mindsets, and tailor your communication to match their mood. It’s also important to be as transparent as possible. While you may need to keep some facts private during a transition, the general rule is that the more informed your people are, the more they’ll be able to deal with discomfort. So, learn about your team’s specific fears, and acknowledge them openly. And make sure individuals at all levels feel included. A transformation won’t succeed without broad involvement.
