ThoughtRiver is contract intelligence software for the legal sector that uses machine learning to scan contracts and other legal documents and presents the information in an online dashboard from which users can visualise and assess risk. The product, called 'Review' is based on ThoughtRiver's Contextual Interpretation Engine. It analyses legal text through a dynamic series of questions and machine learning algorithms, and then interprets the information to produce a risk rating which identify areas of the contract that may require review.
