Artificially Intelligent Legal Information Research Assistant

Ailira is an artificial intelligence developed by Cartland Law that gives legal assistance. She is the first in the world of her type. Ailira does 2 things:

  • Automates legal advice
  • Automates legal research


Ailira’s advice function works like a chatbot. Ailira asks a number of questions via text (or speech) like an interview. That information is collated and can be analysed to provide advice, and also automatically generate documents.

Ailira solves the problem of providing cheaper legal information. Obviously it is not advice because robots cant give advice … yet.

It is this advice function that won Commonwealth and State funding through the D3 Digital Challenge to assist victims of domestic violence and provide advice and automate domestic violence risk assessments and documents such as Intervention Orders.

Ailira is currently in live private testing for business related advice.


Ailira's research function uses natural language processing to reduce research time from hours to minutes.

How does Ailira work? Consider the following statements:

  • Fruit flies like apples
  • Time flies when you are having fun

If you do a keyword search for the word "flies" a traditional search will rank each statement equally. But if I asked "What do flies like?" a human will instantly know that the answer is "apples" rather than "having fun". Ailira can understand that too.

This means you ask Ailira questions just as you would ask them to another person. For example

  • Question: “I have lived overseas for 5 years and have no intention of returning to Australia. I wish to sell my former Australian residence.  Will I have to pay capital gains tax on the proceeds of sale?”
  • Ailira: the second result returns the correct answer in s118-145(4), as well as highlighting a helpful example.

After a successful Beta test, Ailira's tax research function has been launched as a final product.
