RenewData, a full-service eDiscovery provider that offers the industry’s broadest spectrum of review acceleration solutions, today announced that its Director Hope Swancy-Haslam, Esq., will lead discussions on the complexities of technology-assisted review for two Women in eDiscovery luncheons (San Francisco, October 17 and Dallas, October 25)
With 30 chapters and 5,000 members nationwide, Women in eDiscovery is widely regarded for its high-caliber legal technology educational opportunities for its members.
With increasing regularity, legal professionals are turning to technology-assisted review to help cut the costs and time associated with manually reviewing large volumes of data. While the benefits are numerous, it is important to understand the blind spots of technology-assisted review - especially those methods that rely on artificial intelligence. Failing to address this can lead to under-inclusive results and potential risk or over-inclusive results and added time and cost.
Discussion topics will include:
• A breakdown on various forms of technology-assisted review.
• An overview of the pros and cons of each broad category within this segment of the market.
• How to choose the right tool for each matter.
• How most organizations train artificial intelligence-based engines.
• Best practices for building better, more complete, training sets.
• Alternative processes for addressing this "blind spot."
