UIDP Webinar Recording: How AI & Expertise are Making Contract Management Easier

This webinar features a discussion with sponsored research leaders who are using AI to address the contract-related challenges their teams face. During the webinar, the panelists:

  • Discuss how AI is changing the way traditional contract management functions are performed;
  • Present LegalSifter’s AI software as an example of a tool that can enhance contract knowledge and review efficiencies;
  • Consider how such tools can be used to train and empower new contracting staff;
  • Discuss ways that such tools can help an institution implement policy consistently across multiple contracting units (e.g., sponsored programs, tech transfer, risk management, and procurement offices); and
  • Explore where this technology might soon take us, e.g., facilitating iterative interactions between universities and private companies.
