Yesterday I introduced my new podcast, and today I’m jumping right into episode #2. In this episode, I speak with two of the Thomson Reuters executives responsible for last week’s launch of Westlaw Edge, the company’s next-generation legal research platform that uses artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to help legal professionals find answers and perform research more efficiently.

This was arguably the biggest news to come out of Thomson Reuters’ legal division since its launch eight years ago of Westlaw Next. The day before the official announcement, I had the opportunity to speak with Mike Dahn, senior vice president, Product Management, who led the project overall, and Jeff Arvidson, director of product management, who was responsible for bringing Litigation Analytics to Westlaw Edge. This episode features highlights from our conversation.
