    Exploring the World of AI with Olivia Dhein

    In this episode we discuss the hot topic of artificial intelligence. We will consider what is AI, what is a large language model and how does it work, what can AI do and not do at the moment as well as some of the potential effects AI might have in the tax world. We also take a look at the recent Tax Tribunal decision in Harber v HMRC [2023] UKFTT 1007 (TC), in which false case law was generated by AI and innocently relied upon by the taxpayer and how the Tribunal dealt with this.
     
    We are delighted to be joined by our very own expert Olivia Dhein. Olivia is a Knowledge Lawyer at RPC. Prior to joining RPC Olivia was a Professional Support Lawyer at Lexis Nexis and before that she was a commercial disputes lawyer at Freshfields. Olivia is an expert in this dynamic and rapidly changing area.
