NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced the official release of Federal Developments Knowledge Center, a solution that helps legal practitioners survey the transforming landscape of legislation, regulations and executive actions. Following a successful beta launch earlier this year, the newly launched solution now offers cutting-edge predictive analytics powered by artificial intelligence, making it the only offering of its kind on the market.
Federal Developments Knowledge Center provides legal professionals with the right tools to stay current on legislation and regulations proposed and enacted by the current administration and the 115th Congress. It also harnesses first-of-its-kind AI-powered predictive analytics that quickly assesses a proposed bill's likelihood of passage by the chamber of Congress in which it presently resides, as well as its likelihood of ultimate enactment - requiring passage by both chambers and the signature of the President.
"We are pleased to officially bring Federal Developments Knowledge Center to market after a highly successful beta test," said Patricia Ginnis, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. Executive Director Product Innovation. "The product provides customers with timely, accurate content and analysis, complete with a comprehensive source of current information and AI-driven insights – really, superior foresight regarding the likely fate of the pending legislation most important to their clients' businesses."
The new predictive analytics feature was created by information scientists at Skopos Labs, Inc., and is the latest in a continual stream of innovation and harnessing of AI across several Wolters Kluwer product lines. The technology highlights the background on a given bill's relationship to similar existing legislation and relevant sections of the Code of Laws of the United States, to provide even greater insights on the impact that enactment will have on clients.
"Analytics offerings are becoming a 'must have' enhancement for legal research products," said Jean O'Grady, Senior Director of Information, Research & Knowledge at DLA Piper US, LLP and publisher of the widely acclaimed blog, Dewey B Strategic. "The analytics within Federal Developments Knowledge Center have been developed using natural language processing of the legal text and computational assessment of hundreds of external positive and negative factors that affect a particular bill."
Additional key features and benefits of Federal Developments Knowledge Center includes:
- Key Developments Smart Chart™ with alerts organized by practice area
- Summary and supporting analytics for bills including key positive and negative factors, a line-by-line text assessment, and a list of similar bills
