The Future of Legal Services: Why Domain-Specific AI Platforms Like VAIOT Are Essential in a World With GPT

6 min readNov 17


In the world of artificial intelligence (AI), one particular application has recently attracted significant attention — OpenAI’s GPT (Generative Pretrained Transformer). With its ability to generate human-like text based on prompts, it’s understandable why it is considered a revolution in the field. However, despite the impressive functionality of GPT, there’s a crucial place for specialized AI platforms like VAIOT when it comes to specific sectors such as legal services. Here’s why.

AI Specialization: The Key to Specific Solutions

While GPT models can handle a wide array of tasks, their general-purpose nature often limits the depth of their capabilities. In other words, GPT is a Jack-of-all-trades, mastering none. On the other hand, specialized AI platforms, such as VAIOT, are purpose-built for a particular field, in this case, legal services. They combine the power of AI and blockchain technology to create a unique blend of services that provides high-quality, efficient, and cost-effective legal solutions.

This specialization allows VAIOT to offer features that generic AI solutions cannot. For instance, VAIOT can analyze, classify, and generate legal documents with a high degree of precision. Additionally, it can connect users with experienced lawyers for a final review of the documents, ensuring peace of mind for the client.

Such specialized solutions introduce additional non-AI features that can make a given service or process whole. For example, VAIOT can generate ready-to-use legal documentation that can be printed and signed or integrates digital signatures allowing parties to sign contracts prepared by AI as part of the user flow in the application. It also offers the option to negotiate contractual terms between the parties — specialized features supplementing the process of providing legal services to the users.

How specialized LLMs differ from general-purpose LLMs

The underlying difference between specialized solutions like VAIOT and general-purpose tools like ChatGPT is about the Large Language Models (LLMs). As a rule, large models, typically comprising of over a billion parameters, enable super-intelligence phenomena and reasoning. LLMs are generally trained on general public information, where to goal is to adjust them with supervised, labeled data to specialize them in a specific domain.

The general issue lies in the availability of supervised, labeled data as most contemporary enterprises own large sets of unstructured domain-specific data gathered as part of their daily business operations. Companies such as VAIOT, in order to build domain-specific LLMs have to either obtain supervised, structured, labeled data or pre-train the LLMs on self-supervised tasks associated with the domain-specific text. The goal is to have a model that understands the language of the domain, the jargon, correlations, etc.

GPT has a basic common understanding of most topics, whereas domain-specific, specialized LLMs have a deeper understanding of particular topics on which their creators want them to focus. One of the differences in understanding between such models can be illustrated in the example of GPT-3 and FoodUDT-1B where: “According to GPT -3’s vector representation, “apple” is closer to “iPhone” than “apple pie.”

On the other hand, FoodUDT-1B thinks that vector representations of “apple” and “apple pie” are significantly closer than “iPhone.” It is easy to see the reason. FoodUDT-1B only has mastery about food recipes, while GPT-3 has mastery of the internet where “apple” is a company brand that produces “iPhone”; hence, the two words are very related.” (GPT vs Domain Specialized LLMs: Jack of All Trades Vs Master of Few, Prof. Anshumali Shrivastava).

As explained by Professor Shrivastava, we can get an expert model that understands a given domain at a finer level or we can get a generic model that views a particular concept, field of knowledge, or domain in light of all concepts around us, across the union of all information.

Future-Proof Legal Services

As the legal sector evolves, the demand for fast, accurate, and affordable services continues to grow. Traditional legal services can be time-consuming, expensive, and inaccessible to many. VAIOT’s AI-driven legal services platform addresses these issues by leveraging AI to automate the bulk of the work, significantly reducing the time and cost associated with traditional legal services.

The future promises an array of AI applications, each tailored to address specific needs. The advent of AI doesn’t signify the end of human involvement but rather a shift in how we approach tasks. By combining AI’s efficiency with human expertise, platforms like VAIOT are shaping the future of the legal industry, setting a new standard for legal services.

Interplay of General AI and Specialized AI

The emergence of powerful general AI like GPT doesn’t negate the value of specialized AI platforms. Instead, they complement each other. While GPT can offer a broad range of capabilities, specialized AI can provide the depth required in specific sectors.

In a world where time is a precious commodity and accuracy is paramount, specialized AI platforms like VAIOT offer an indispensable solution for the legal sector. By providing fast, reliable, and cost-effective services, they not only cater to the current needs but also pave the way for future developments in the industry.

In conclusion, although GPT models have brought remarkable advancements in the field of AI, there is still a significant role for specialized AI platforms. The future will not be monopolized by a single, all-encompassing AI but rather a network of specialized AIs, each serving a distinct purpose and catering to unique needs, thereby creating a more effective, efficient, and inclusive world.
