Alex Smith to depart Reed Smith LLP for artificial intelligence services provider RAVN

08 Apr 2019

PSMG member Alex Smith, Innovation Manager, Reed Smith LLP is leaving the firm to join RAVN, the artificial intelligence services provider. 

Alex told Cristiano Dalla Bona of The Lawyer, that part of his new role, created specifically for him, will be to oversee product management and client roadmap of the platform from implementation to delivery. 

He will tap into his private practice experience to build a dialogue with law firms and businesses around what they want to achieve with the product. 

“This opportunity evolved from conversations with Nick Thomson [general manager at IManage RAVN] around developments in the area of knowledge management,” Smith told The Lawyer, saying he identified an opportunity to experiment with new applications as the company harbors expansion plans.

Everyone at PSMG wishes Alex much success in his new role.

RAVN’s technology reads, interprets and extracts information from documents and then converts this unstructured data into structured output in a fraction of the time it would take a human. A machine learning aspect is involved in the information finding process.

RAVN, along with other AI providers, has seen significant growth over the past couple of years with a growing roster of UK firms and major clients adopting its services.
