Washington Plaza Hotel, Washington DC - The conference critically examines the usefulness and effectiveness of "technology-assisted" review as a tool whose proponents assert will substantially reduce ediscovery costs. "Technology-assisted" review is also referred to sometimes as "predictive-coding" review or "computer-assisted" review. Its utility was challenged and upheld in Da Silva Moore (2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23350 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 24, 2012)), a decision rendered by Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck and confirmed by U.S. District Judge Andrew Carter (11 Civ. 1279 (ALC)(AJP)). Under the new technology, senior lawyers review a few thousand documents for relevancy and privilege, which provides information for artificial intelligence to do the same for the remainder of the electronically stored information in an iterative process, potentially substantially reducing the costs of manual review.
