Emerging Technologies

Overview

Since 2015, with our implementation of ROSS, an AI powered machine backed by IBM’s Watson technology, BakerHostetler has been leading the way in using, understanding and shaping the ways business, clients and the legal industry will adapt to the emerging and transformative technologies.

Today, we are a Founding Steward of the Sovrin Foundation.  Sovrin is a global, decentralized identity network that allows people and organizations to create portable, self-sovereign digital identities, which they control, and cannot be taken away by any government or organization. It uses a public permissioned ledger, governed by the Sovrin Foundation.

Additionally, we are members of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance Legal Working Group and the Accord project, of which we chair the IP Working Group. Enterprise Ethereum Alliance connects Fortune 500 enterprises, startups, academics, and technology vendors with Ethereum subject matter experts.The Accord Project is comprised of lawyers, technologists, business professionals to develop techno-legal standards and open source software that promote the market wide adoption of smart legal contracts and minimize development that is isolated, duplicative, and incongruous.

We are also working with ConsenSys Academy to create a Blockchain curriculum for lawyers, ConsenSys Academy’s mission is to develop the global blockchain ecosystem by bridging the Ethereum knowledge gap, becoming the beacon for Ethereum education, and revolutionizing education through blockchain technology.
