RenewData, a full-service eDiscovery provider that offers the industry’s broadest spectrum of review acceleration solutions, today announced that the Organization of Legal Professionals will host a webinar featuring its Director Hope Swancy-Haslam, J.D. The presentation, which will focus on understanding the blind spots of technology-assisted review, will be held on October 24 at 12 pm. CT.
The Organization of Legal Professionals is a professional association dedicated to setting standards and certifications through collaboration and education.
Technology-assisted review (also referred to as predictive coding) is quickly becoming an important tool to help organizations analyze and interpret dramatically increasing sets of document collections.
However, if the tools rely solely on artificial intelligence, the results are only as good as the training sets they are based on. Failing to address this blind spot can lead to under-inclusive results and potential risk or over-inclusive results and added time and cost.
The webinar will include:
• An overview of the various forms of technology-assisted review.
• Pros and cons of each broad category.
• How to choose the right tool for each matter.
• An outline on how most organizations train artificial intelligence-based engines today.
• Best practices for building better, more complete, training sets.
• Alternative processes for addressing this “blind spot.”
