Part of Equivio’s strong commitment to education lies in its well-regarded webinar series called Predictive Coding Minus the Hype.
Many lawyers face a conflict when considering the use of analytical software. On the one hand, they seek evidence-based confirmation that analytic software tools are drawing the correct conclusions (and by “correct” they mean the same conclusions as they would themselves reach). On the other hand, many lawyers (including me) are daunted by the mathematical and statistical concepts which underpin these analytic tools.
Many lawyers take refuge in sneering at “black boxes”, and stick with the methods which served them well in the days when discovery consisted of a few folders of paper documents.
The one mathematical certainty, however, is that old methods are seriously inadequate for modern volumes, even before pressures of time and cost are taken into account.
Avi Elkoni of Equivio addresses this conflict in a repeat of his webinar Demystifying Statistics in Predictive Coding. The webinar aims to help lawyers and others understand:
- Statistical concepts used in predictive coding. What they are and why they’re important
- Statistical measures including richness, recall, precision and F-measure
- Basic concepts of statistical estimation including sample size and error margin
The webinar is at 1.00pm EDT on 11 August. There is more information and a registration form here.
