Tech Partner // vLex

vLex, in partnership with Compass / vLex Canada, is making available 100 instances of its cloud-based Artificial Intelligence platform designed to address the unique challenges of creating custom legal knowledge & analytics solutions. This enterprise offering will be scaled to hackathon levels and participating teams of the Global Legal Hackathon get access to:

  • A private installation of Iceberg with the [Data Modeling], [Workspaces] and [Imports modules].
  • A collection of pre-loaded data (30,000+ cases from a major federal court) 
  • Space to add up to 10,000 of your own documents 
  • Flexibility to create multiple sandbox workspaces 
  • Pre-trained machine learning models for Recommendations, Document Classification, Entity Extraction, Citation Discovery (vCite) and Keyphrase Extraction
  • A ready to use connection to IBM's Watson Natural Language Understanding model for enhanced machine learning services (requires free sign-up to Watson)

For teams that want to continue to refine their idea beyond the hackathon, we will work with teams to arrange 6-month no-charge access and support.
