dash identifies intraspexion as part of the its collaboration platform at the british legal tech forum

On March 15, 2018, in an article by the UK's Richard Tromans, writing for his Artificial Lawyer blog, the topic was the high value of collaboration.

Larry Bridgesmith is an Adjunct Professor of Law at the Vanderbilt School of Law, and is not only the CEO of DASH, he is also a co-founder of Intraspexion.

In 2016, Intraspexion signed a letter of interest for an "interoperability relationship" with Larry's entity, Legal Alignment, LLC, which is now on the world stage as DASH.

The article identifies the AI and blockchain-based companies who are the current DASH "collaborators" as ROSS Intelligence, Kim Technologies, Clause, Voltaire, and Intraspexion, all of which were depicted in a screenshot from Larry's presentation at the British Legal Tech Forum.

To catch a fish (either an advantage to take or risk to avoid), you need a fishing rod. That’s what Deep Learning is to Big Data.’ Rather than waiting for when risk ‘metastasizes into a lawsuit,’ Brestoff aims to provide legal departments with the tools to move from managing risk to avoiding risk.”
