Using AI to generate a quick first draft for my motions at work as a Public Defender

When you’re a public defender, time is of the essence. You’re often up against a clock, trying to get your motions in as quickly as possible.

But what if there was a way to get a quick first draft of your motion, without having to spend hours writing it yourself?

Enter, Artificial Intelligence.

By using Artificial Intelligence to generate a quick first draft of your motion, you can save yourself valuable time that can be spent on other cases. And, because AI is constantly learning, the more you use it, the better it will become at creating drafts that meet your needs.

I’ve recently been experimenting with using the AI called GPT-3 over at OpenAI to help me write my motions at work. I’m still in the early stages, but so far I’m really impressed with how well it works! I haven’t actually filed anything yet that was drafted using this amazing tool but I’ve created a few quick drafts that have completely blown me away when it comes to their quality.

For those that don’t know, GPT-3 is a machine learning platform that enables developers to train and deploy AI models. It’s incredibly powerful, and is already being used by some of the biggest companies in the world, like Google, Microsoft, and Facebook.

So far, I’ve been using GPT-3 to generate some mock motions to see how effective the platform is. The drafts are usually about 70-80% complete, which is a huge time saver for me. And, because GPT-3 is constantly learning, the drafts are only going to get better and better over time.

I’ve actually been enjoying using this platform so much that I’m using it for more than just motion writing, I wrote some more about this over here!
