Networks & Deep Learning)

‘The Rosetta Stone of Law, The Babelfish of Business’ — CEO of the Australian Compliance Institute on Nate McDonald in 2005.

Nate has since presented his legal linguistics insights and robotics automation at law, business, government & defense conferences in America, Europe, the Middle East including the 1339 page UK-EU Brexit Treaty that his robot read and processed in 30 seconds — 2600 pages per minute of processing or 1 billion pages/year.

The 2005 International Plain Legal Language Conference keynote speaker, Lawyer and Barrister, Christopher Balmford described Nate’s tools and robot as ‘the most exciting development in our field at the moment. We may look back and see its development as revolutionary.’

In 2018 former High Court judge, the Honourable Michael Kirby wrote to Nate saying ‘Keep up your engagement in conceptual thought concerning information technology and plain language.’

Dr David Millhouse is excited to have coaxed him to return to Australia to add modern Cloud Computing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence tools to his already impressive robotic processing tools. (RP+ML+AI). David reports ‘You’ll discover that he’s quite the reticent-reluctant-recluse guru. Doesn’t like the spotlight at all. We’re all very lucky to have
him’.

Nate is a Legal Linguistics Engineer and now Leader of Artificial Intelligence Initiatives at ActiumAI.
