One of the common concerns that I hear from prospects is how Legalyze.ai prevents hallucinations. This is not surprising, especially given the 'ChatGPT Lawyer' incident, where ChatGPT fabricated court cases. In this post, we will outline some of the ways that Legalyze.ai is preventing hallucinations and enabling fact-based AI outcomes.
- Disabling AI Creativity: Legalyze.ai utilizes an AI setting called 'Temperature', which controls the AI’s level of creativity. This setting can be set on a scale of 0 to 1, with 0 representing a complete lack of creativity and 1 indicating the highest level of creativity. By setting the temperature to 0, we ensure that the AI focuses solely on delivering factual and straightforward answers, thereby significantly reducing the chances of hallucination.
- Leveraging your Own Context to Enhance Accuracy: Relying solely on ChatGPT has its limitations, notably its knowledge which is confined to information available until 2021. To bypass this restriction, Legalyze.ai allows users to input their own case data and files as context, thereby significantly enriching the AI’s understanding and enabling the creation of enhanced case summaries, timelines, and documents through generative AI.Moreover, Legalyze.ai empowers users to supplement the AI's resources by integrating relevant statutes and codes from various jurisdictions.
- Facilitating Honest AI Responses with Prompt Engineering: AI sometimes can attempt to "be right at any cost" in its responses, which can result in hallucinations. To prevent this, Legalyze.ai incorporates fail-safes in our prompt design. Essentially, we guide the AI to admit "I cannot find the answer" when it cannot derive a conclusive response from the provided context, effectively avoiding hallucinations.
