On November 14, 2018, mthai commented on The long awaited tech disruption of the legal sector :

It will be a big challenge for legal professionals as the article mentioned. Law firms in the future will have to consolidate, hire fewer junior lawyers but still groom them to become partners and employ more technology in order to stay competitive as clients will continue to be more demanding about the cost they pay for legal service.

I would argue for partnering with enterprise-focused technology companies like Microsoft to help develop products and learn from the experience before trying to do it themselves.

It is interesting to see how nowadays people want to limit first physical interaction and opt to use Tinder or to get dates. One might argue that technology helps facilitate those interactions more efficiently. However, it might perpetuate certain biases about people. How do you know whether one is a good fit for you just purely based on works he or she describes herself in an online post or some Instagram filtered pictures? In the future, those dating apps might incorporate more human-centric designed features to help connect humans more on an emotional level than just helping them swipes to get dates.
