Betty Blocks Introduces Secure and Flexible Low-code AI Toolkit for Law Firms

Alkmaar, 25-07-2023 – Today, low-code platform Betty Blocks announces the Low-Code AI Toolkit in its platform. With the Low-Code AI Toolkit, law firms can securely and easily incorporate AI into their solutions without extensive technical expertise. This enables law firms to rapidly build and test solutions without having to set up large IT projects and ensures compliance with company policies. Betty Blocks also offers the expertise to create a sustainable AI implementation strategy together. 


BB-AISecure toolkit for powerful AI solutions

With AI taking the world by storm, law firms are assessing the impact of AI on their current and future business. Early adopters face challenges such as data security concerns and limitations from off-the-shelf solutions. Off-the-shelf products mainly offer a single solution that doesn’t integrate with other solutions. As a result, law firms with multiple use cases pay high license fees for multiple siloed products. Also, the accuracy of AI results, which increases human errors, is a problem that can lead to lawyers making mistakes with fabricated AI content. Betty Blocks released the Low-Code AI Toolkit to address these challenges in a flexible and secure way. 


“Implementing AI is currently a difficult process with complex toolsets. With the Betty Blocks Low-Code AI Toolkit, law firms can leverage the power of AI to build flexible low-code solutions without compromising security and development speed. The Betty Blocks platform functions as a centralized place where law firms can connect to multiple Large Language Models (LLMs) and take their capabilities to the next level with bespoke low-code solutions. A common use case is connecting multiple AI providers and switching models for specific document searches. Connecting to multiple LLMs offers more flexibility for practice areas and ensures law firms don’t get stuck when an LLM changes or is prohibited due to new company regulations. This makes AI adoption as simple as possible and lower barriers to entry,” says Chris Obdam, CEO and co-founder of Betty Blocks. 


Flexibility is a key driver for Betty Blocks, which is reflected in how they offer security. Within the Betty Blocks platform, users have three levels of security. Externally hosted by a provider of choice, where security is dependent on the hosting party. Hosted by Betty Blocks in a secure and controlled cloud environment or hosted on-premises, providing the most secure environment for private data.

How does the Low-Code AI Toolkit work?

With Betty Blocks, you can easily create your own applications featuring different elements of AI. We have created an AI toolkit that consists of page- and app templates, and building blocks (pre-built components) with AI capabilities that can be used individually or collectively to create your application. 

The AI toolkit allows you to create a fully customized workflow within an application that suits your needs, from smaller solutions to larger, more complex applications. 

You can, for example, create an application that uses a set of documents that are first anonymized. Then these documents can be summarized, and, after that classified, sorting the documents into different sections. All in the same application, fueled by a workflow that is built with the Betty Blocks AI toolkit. 

What AI functionality can I use?

This step allows you to send a prompt to a language model, such as Open AI, and retrieve the answer. You can use this step in combination with other components, such as a textbox for building a chatbot. The prompt step can be customized, for example, it can always check the spelling of each submission. 

This step is able to use a language model to assess your input and classify where it belongs in the parameters you set. For example, it can determine whether an input is true, false, or undetermined. This enables you to build a workflow where you can check the status of a prompt or segment of text.

This step automatically summarizes text. It can be configured in a range of possibilities to determine how long the summarization should be or even how many tokens from the language model it should use. This step can be used in a powerful workflow with integrations, automatically summarizing documents.

This step is able to anonymize information such as names, addresses or anything else you specify. This is useful if you want to anonymize a large set of documents without having to go through each line individually. This step significantly speeds up the process of anonymizing sensitive information.

Semantic search
This step allows you to search through data with natural language rather than keyword search. For example, you can ask the search in natural language to find documents within a data range. This step can be integrated with Document Management Systems, significantly improving search capabilities. 


Revolutionizing knowledge management with the AI Search Hub

By utilizing AI, law firms can address a wide variety of use cases. Examples are automated summarization of documents, document generation, simplifying complex texts, entity anonymization, and a chatbot that can be combined with these use cases. One of the AI solutions that is already driving a lot of traction is the AI Search Hub.


Efficient knowledge management is plagued by terabytes of unorganized documents scattered across multiple databases and sources, making finding the correct information through traditional keyword searches time-consuming and frustrating. The AI Search Hub revolutionizes document search by streamlining the process of finding relevant information. Lawyers can access powerful search functionality by connecting databases and sources to the hub. The hub uses advanced language models to understand user queries' semantic meaning and context, presenting highly relevant results. 


The AI Search Hub lists relevant documents and a percentage match to the query. The hub can even give results from multiple connected sources such as iManage, Netdocs, and Sharepoint. This helps organizations find information faster and more accurately.


The journey to a sustainable AI strategy

“With AI still in its early stages for public use and AI policies continuously changing and updating, solutions must be adaptable, flexible, and guarantee data security. It’s also important to create and align your roadmap with stakeholder needs. You need to envision your ideal situation, start with the end in mind, and work towards that in incremental steps. That’s where we come in. We can help organizations with a full range of services such as an AI scan and development support”, says Fred Slagter, VP of CSM and Services at Betty Blocks.
