A Theory of Absolute Zero

How can we create order out of legal chaos?

The 273 Ventures Thesis.


"Regulatory and legal complexity is growing📈, but resources allocated to complete legal “jobs to be done” are not. Many (legal) organizations have explored various forms of digital transformation with the hope that automation-enhancing technologies could help increase legal productivity. Suffice it to say: the record has been mixed thus far.

Meanwhile, there have been truly amazing developments in AI/ML/NLP and computing, including ChatGPT, Dall-E, Bloom, and other breakthrough models. These models are not just shattering prior state-of-the-art results, but also doing it with increasing accessibility and energy efficiency.

At last, it seems that we stand on the precipice of the long-promised AI revolution.


How do we actually leverage these developments for use within the legal industry? Digital transformation, as we might call it, starts with data. Unfortunately, data in law lives in a series of oft-disconnected systems. Though many organizations want to leverage data to be able to do “more with less,” most cannot truly unlock the theoretical value of their data because of the chaotic technology systems they operate within.

At absolute zero (-273°C), chaos gives way to order. In that spirit - from chaos to order – we are building a Legal Data OS (Operating System), designed to connect the many structured and unstructured inputs in legal departments and law firms.

Our Legal Data OS is powered by billions of tokens and data points captured from hundreds of millions of documents, dockets, and other sources. It ships with hundreds of data models, automatic integration with many leading products, and the connective tissue to link to virtually any data in any location. Both technical and non-technical users will have convenient access to a bevy of software modules and data assets.

These legal-specific capabilities span not just fundamental needs like self-tuning OCR engines, legal dictionaries, LEDES/UTBMS schemas, and docket parsers, but also proprietary OWL/SKOS knowledge graphs and connectors for LLMs like OpenAI’s GPT-3 or other models that can run behind the firewall without cloud access. By carefully crafting our Legal Data OS for compliance with information security standards, data protection laws, and software licensing requirements, we have created a purpose-built platform uniquely designed to meet the needs of professionals working in and around the legal industry.

It's time to connect legal data and end the chaos - to bring order to the complexity.

It's time for the Kelvin Legal Data OS.
