The deceptively genius philosophy behind LiquidText is that the human brain doesn’t use a computer the same way it uses paper. That’s why efforts to square peg-round hole the logic of pen and paper onto a computer screen never quite capture the experience. LiquidText embraces the tablet experience and provides a more intuitive method of marking up and organizing documents than either paper or computer can achieve.
It’s hard to convey in words the impact of LiquidText’s ability to let the user visually connect and link documents, pinch the screen to improve comparison, and improve collaboration. One legal tech reporter came close during a LiquidText demonstration with “so f**king cool.” I’ll echo that.
Anyway, the latest, probably inevitable news is that LiquidText now deploys generative AI tools, announcing this morning that the tool is now integrated with ChatGPT and other offerings from OpenAI.
Users can query the product about project documents with ChatGPT analyzing the documents and providing an answer. But the most interesting addition, considering the philosophy behind LiquidText, uses OpenAI’s semantic analysis tools to consider user text inputs and suggest the appropriate citation to documents in the library and insert links to the parts of the documents that users were most likely writing about.
“By bringing these features to LiquidText, we hope to harness the large language model technology to help users work smarter every day,” says Craig Tashman, PhD, Founder and CEO of LiquidText. “These new features have potential to help people who read and analyze large document sets make connections they might not have found through their own analysis.”
For a tool based around making intuitive connections between documents, the integration of these tools just supercharges the user’s ability to find and leverage connections.
Still so cool.
