3.20 pm - 3.50pm - ThoughtRiver, a company presentation. ThoughtRiver addresses a fundamental problem for lawyers: you simply don’t know which part of a contract to focus on without reading it all. Their pre-screening technology automates this review process by reading the contract, answering key questions, suggesting what to do next. It works by deploying a sophisticated machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) engine which understands the contract at the sentence level. The Lexible framework then asks and answers thousands of individual questions of that contract to build a detailed picture of the obligations and rights within it. ThoughtRiver currently have openings for a Quality Assurance Analyst, Software Engineer (PHP), Software Engineer (Front-End), Python Developer, Data Scientist (NLP), Product Designer, Customer Success Manager USA, DevOps Engineer, Technical Operations and Support Engineer, and Legal Technology Paralegal.

3.50pm - 4pm - Final Q & A and close
