Genie AI, a prominent artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technology company, has provided an update on the development of the UK’s first AI Legal Assistant, surpassing GPT-4 in legal performance.
Genie AI is leveraging OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology to build its proprietary Large Language Models (LLM). Remarkably, GPT-4 achieved exceptional results on the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE), outperforming previous LLMs by scoring in the top 10% of all human test-takers, including both the multiple-choice and written components. Notably, GPT-3 scored in the bottom 10%.
The significant advancements in foundation models were primarily achieved by scaling up the underlying model rather than fine-tuning specifically for law. However, London-based Genie AI aims to outperform GPT-4 in legal tasks by the end of the year, based on accuracy under UK law.
Genie AI’s AI Legal Assistant will introduce several key features to enhance legal workflows and improve document review and analysis. These features include real-time document-level workflows, where users can input queries and watch as the AI Assistant completes the requested work in real-time. The Assistant will also automatically flag clauses based on riskiness and favourability, providing suggestions and explanations. Additionally, the Assistant will simplify, summarize, or explain entire documents or clauses using prompts generated by UK-specific legal expertise.
Going beyond generative chat interfaces, Genie’s AI Legal Assistant will be seamlessly integrated into the Genie editor, allowing for commenting, reviewing, reformatting, highlighting, annotating, suggesting, and exporting, similar to human capabilities. This makes Genie AI’s Legal Assistant the UK’s first “multi-modal” AI Legal Assistant.
To outperform GPT-4, Genie’s AI Legal Assistant incorporates legal and commercial datasets spanning numerous business contracts and legal precedents. It utilizes prompts engineered by senior lawyers tailored to legal use cases and queries multiple models in addition to GPT-4.
Genie AI’s 1500 open-source legal templates are already widely adopted, used by 1000 law firms, companies with in-house legal teams, and a total of 10,000 organizations, with 200 new users joining daily. The anonymized data generated from user comments, suggestions, and edits is then structured and used to fine-tune Genie AI’s LLM.
Alex Papadopoulos, ML Research Scientist at Genie AI, expressed pride in the progress made, emphasizing the foundation of their LLM with proprietary usage data and an extensive collection of agreements from megacap companies. With ongoing customer research, Genie AI aims to develop the world’s premier AI Legal Assistant for the UK and other common law jurisdictions.
Genie AI is currently testing its AI Legal Assistant in complementary common law jurisdictions, including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, and New Zealand.
