UBIC has broadened its scope from its original specialist area of Asian language eDiscovery, expanding significantly into the use of behavioural analytics both to identify relevant documents for discovery purposes and to help the identification of conduct likely to give rise to a dispute or investigation.
That is the subject of a seminar in UBIC’s Signature Seminar series, to be held in Washington on 20 June. I enjoyed their one in December (I wrote about it here) and was asked to take part in this one. I am, unfortunately, already committed to an evening event in London on the previous day and it proved impossible to find flights which would allow me to do both.
The full title of the seminar is A Predictive Analytic Approach to Investigations and Regulatory Disputes through Artificial Intelligence – How Sophisticated Software Coupled with Proactive Risk Management Can Identify Hidden Risks and Warn of a Potential Crisis, which needs little elaboration from me. It is described here.
There are two panel sessions, one led by Christina Ayiotis of Georgetown Cybersecurity Law Institute which focuses on reducing costs by anticipating risk, and one called Advanced Analytics for the Legal Profession, led by Paul Starrett, Counsel and Chief Global Risk Officer for UBIC North America.
Other speakers include Bennett Borden of Drinker Biddle (and, of course, of the Information Governance Initiative), the excellent David Shonka, Principal Deputy Counsel at the FTC, and speakers from PWC and Santander bank.
I will be sorry to miss this event, whose subject matter carries us beyond the daily grind of electronic discovery. Registration for the event is here.
