Thomson Reuters Introduces Data Privacy Advisor
Thomson Reuters is introducing Data Privacy Advisor, a specialized data privacy research solution. The solution brings the company’s collection of global legal and regulatory information together with data privacy guidance from Practical Law editors, curated news, and a question-answering feature built by artificial intelligence and technology professionals from Thomson Reuters and IBM Watson.
According to Thomson Reuters, data privacy landscape has been impacted by major global trends, including the digitization of data, continued globalization of business, and an increasingly complex regulatory environment. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect in the EU this year only makes the situation more complicated.
Data Privacy Advisor was created to support privacy professionals at multinational businesses and law firms. It offers an understanding of the law and privacy obligations across multiple jurisdictions, including global statutory and regulatory materials – including pending legislation and regulations, data privacy country guides for more than 80 countries, the full GDPR library, and Practical Law know-how content directed to global legal and program management issues; question answering via IBM Watson-enabled technology that allows users to ask relevant questions in their own words and receive a full-sentence answer; curated news, analysis and blog content specific to data privacy; and Related Concepts – a feature designed to help users discover additional insights that otherwise might go unnoticed, also enabled by Watson.
Data Privacy Advisor also provides “Ask Watson a Question,” currently in beta. It is a question-answering feature for global privacy compliance and was built in partnership by the Thomson Reuters Center for Cognitive Computing and IBM Watson.
