Professional Expertise, Machine Learning, and Blockchain (and in Law too)


(thanks to supplychaintoday.com)

My student, Lachlan Robb, and I have put a new paper on SSRN. The paper is

"Professions and Expertise: How Machine Learning and Blockchain are Redesigning the Landscape of Professional Knowledge and Organisation"

The abstract reads

Machine learning has entered the world of the professions with differential impacts. Engineering, architecture, and medicine are early and enthusiastic adopters. Other professions, especially law, are late and in some cases reluctant adopters. And in the wider society automation will have huge impacts on the nature of work and society. This paper examines the effects of artificial intelligence and blockchain on professions and their knowledge bases. We start by examining the nature of expertise in general and then how it functions in law. Using examples from law, such as Gulati and Scott’s analysis of how lawyers create (or don’t create) legal agreements, we show that even non-routine and complex legal work is potentially amenable to automation. However, professions are different because they include both indeterminate and technical elements that make pure automation difficult to achieve. We go on to consider the future prospects of AI and blockchain on professions and hypothesise that as the technologies mature they will incorporate more human work through neural networks and blockchain applications such as the DAO. For law, and the legal profession, the role of lawyer as trusted advisor will again emerge as the central point of value.

Thanks For Sharing Excellent Blog. Machine Learning is steadily moving away from abstractions and engaging more in business problem solving with support from AI and Deep Learning. With Big Data making its way back to mainstream business activities, now smart (ML) algorithms can simply use massive loads of both static and dynamic data to continuously learn and improve for enhanced performance.

With most financial organizations moving towards continuous delivery and agile based development models, the frequency of testing increases. Considering the complexity of the landscape and the business transactions themselves, any QA automation effort would be complex and need to combine multi-disciplinary skills. In such a scenario, regression testing (testing of existing or unchanged functionality to ensure its stability) becomes a larger volume of work, drudgery and potential point of failure.
