Law and Big Data

Fascinating piece on the legal implications of big data and visualization. An area that I had not considered fully before.    In particular: " .. Predicting the outcome of disputes, given the increased granularity and accuracy of data ... ".  Also mentioned the implications of how the visualization of this data will change insight into its use.  I would imagine that better or even just different models could also influence legal liability.  We did think about this during out AI explorations and the Legal department was concerned.   IBM may have to consider how the interpretations of a Watson, using big data, which is just another kind of model ... may be liable for its decisions.
