司法事務所の仕事を奪いそうな "smart contracts" の利点

はじめに


・大手の投資機関から人間のトレーダーが消え去り、AI が取って代わったように、いずれ法律事務所で働く大勢の人間も AI に取って代わるだろう…という予想に関連した話題。

・"smart contracts" の適切な訳語を知らないが、従来の司法事務所に代って、AI と Blockchain 技術による企業の法律問題をサポートするシステムらしい。

・"smart contracts" の利点に絞って紹介する。

一部抜粋



Smart contract advantages


The ability to implement smart contract that could readily benefit organizations. For small to medium enterprises (SMEs), contracts are essential in defining the scope of transactions such as deliverables and costs.

Having these details in writing offer businesses protection in case disputes arise from transactions. Smart contracts leverage blockchain’s transparent and immutable records making them potentially more secure than traditional legal documentation.

Because of this, smart contracts could even allow for large transactions to be conducted purely online. For example, real estate transactions have mainly been face-to-face and offline.

They also require several intermediaries such as brokers, lawyers, and banks to facilitate each step of the process.However, since smart contracts could already keep track of the terms of an agreement and automate enforcement, third party involvement may not be necessary anymore.

Blockchain and smart contracts can be a difference maker to organizations. Accenture estimates that investment banks could save $12 billion a year on infrastructure costs by using blockchain and smart contracts.

Not only do smart contracts have the potential to offset intermediary costs, but automation could also improve overall business efficiency leading to better experiences for customers.
