The use of predictive coding and other machine learning algorithms in eDiscovery is a very practical and commercial application of advanced and sophisticated search technology whose use requires the development of best practice standards. No one does this better than Jason Baron, who, with others, has brought a serious level of scientific and academic study to the practical problems faced by courts and lawyers in managing eDiscovery / eDisclosure in a way which is simultaneously cost-effective and defensible.
The latest in a series of DESI (Discovery of Electronically Stored Information) workshops will take place in Rome on 14 July 2013. Jason Baron will be joined by Jack G. Conrad of Thomson Reuters, Switzerland, Dave Lewis, David D. Lewis Consulting, USA, Debra Logan, Gartner Research, UK, Douglas W. Oard, University of Maryland, USA and Fabrizio Sebastiani, Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologia dell’Informazione, Italy
I very much hope to be there, as an observer rather than a participant.
