MCDS students Ran Chen, Preethi Sureshkumar and Chen Wang co-authored the paper "Introducing LUIMA: An Experiment in Legal Conceptual Retrieval of Vaccine Injury Decisions Using a UIMA Type System and Tools" that was presented at the 15th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Law (ICAIL 2015) in San Diego this past June and published in the conference proceedings. The students' work on LUIMA was mentored by MCDS Director Eric Nyberg and involved close collaboration with Matthias Grabmair and Professor Kevin Ashley from the University of Pittsburgh's Learning Research and Development Center, and Professor Vern Walker's Law, Logic and Technology Lab at the Hofstra University School of Law.
ICAIL is a biannual weeklong conference and the largest conference of the artificial intelligence and law community. Conference papers are selected using anonymized peer review, and its proceedings are among the main publishing venues for the field.
