Our Sifters


Built on the experience of tens of thousands of people, our Sifters are trained to read text and look for a specific concept. They read novel language, learn from experience, and improve over time.

Our Sifters use natural language processing and machine learning.

  • The dog is brown.

  • They call him Charlie. 

  • Charlie is a Labrador retriever. 

  • The brown puppy is named Charlie.

People use different words to describe the same thing. The variety makes language interesting ... and legal documents painful to read.


Our Sifters use two types of artificial intelligence to solve this problem: machine learning and natural language processing (NLP). 


NLP teaches computers to interpret human language as written, regardless of style. Our Sifters use NLP to convert text into meaning. 


We train our Sifters with machine learning to identify a specific concept like a consequential damages waiver. Our lawyers find hundreds or thousands of examples of a specific concept. Our Data Science team uses machine learning to find the intangible thread that binds the writing of lots of lawyers, all with their own grammatical flair. 

As more of our clients use the Sifters, they improve. Our Sifter Trainer, for example, retrains Sifters within 5 days of receiving client feedback.
