Tim Pullan is founder and CEO of ThoughtRiver, the intelligent contract pre-screening leader.
In 2015 Tim relocated from Singapore to the UK to develop ThoughtRiver’s technology in Cambridge, one of the world’s leading centres for natural language processing and machine learning.
Tim is a regular writer and speaker on the role of data and machine learning in transforming legal risk management.
In this podcast he tells us about ThoughtRiver and how it is helping lawyers use their time more efficiently rather than constantly reinventing the wheel.
In Tim’s view, once you have a knowledge-tree like structure in place and introduce consistency into the common parts of contract review, you can then start automating things, be that remediation, or reporting and information sharing.
But the thing that enables all of that to happen is to have a consistent universal data model on which all of these other use cases and applications can rest on.
AI then becomes an enabler for the delivery of expert advice to the user to help them speed through the task of creating and approving a contract.
