- Considering innovation from the human side and from the machine side
- Change management as key in a People->Process->Technology approach to innovation as you encounter problems, behaviours and opinions early and often in addressing challenges that may have a technical component to the solution
- Machine-centric or initiated experimentation is essential to innovation as we start with a language and text problem - i.e., large blocks of unstructured text that defines rights and obligations - that require heavy effort on NLP, information architecture and access to data challenges
- Experimentation as different than innovation, where the former expands the range of technological solutions that exist for the latter to select and incorporate as and when needed
- Within legal and justice circles, there are many different communities
