Atlanta Associate Leah Schultz authored an article published April 3 by Law360 concerning new legal questions about the weight that AI-created statements might have as evidence in litigation. Publications such as IWatch Markets and The Washington Post both utilize AI robots to produce content on investment trends and market data, while companies such as Deloitte, Credit Suisse and Mastercard have begun incorporating AI-written publications to communicate with customers. With the rise of the internet, courts have been increasingly presented with legal questions of whether an electronic communication is a “statement” within the meaning of the Federal Rules of Evidence, and similarly whether publications made on corporate websites are admissions by the company that hosts the website. The question now is whether statements created by AI bots on a company website also may be seen as admissions by the courts.
