Breaking the Stranglehold of Traditional eDiscovery Review
Original Broadcast Date: Tuesday, April 24, 2012
Technology Assisted Review is making eDiscovery smarter and more efficient. Meaning Based Coding and similar predictive technologies are enabling attorneys to break the stranglehold of large scale manual review. Studies from The Sedona Conference® and other researchers have demonstrated that Technology Assisted Review can yield higher quality and be far more cost-effective than traditional manual review. But while the drive to more intelligently manage the large information volumes common to eDiscovery is inevitable, many attorneys require a firmer understanding of the meaning-based technologies involved, the processes to be followed, and the defensibility of these approaches.
In this webinar legal and eDiscovery experts will cover the following:
- What are the implications and expectations regarding the use of advances in Technology Assisted Review technologies based on recent decisions?
- How Meaning Based Coding combines the ability to understand the meaning of all information including audio, video and social media with the practical meaning of specific issues and tags to deliver highly accurate results
- How different types of inputs can be used to develop Meaning Based Coding definitions, including the meaning of documents, specific classes of metadata, as well as results from a preliminary focused review, provides attorneys flexibility to handle each unique matter
- The processes that attorneys can follow to increase the accuracy of automated tagging and take advantage of predictive technologies to radically cull eDiscovery data sets in a defensible manner
- How combining Technology Assisted Review technologies with an automated, policy based work flow engine can radically reconfigure eDiscovery matter management
