E-Discovery Search and Retrieval and is Human Review The Gold Standard?


ediscovery_search_and_retrieval

Karl Schieneman, Founder and Owner of Review Less and friend of JurInnov, discusses search and retrieval issues with Maura Grossman of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and Professor Gordon V. Cormack from the University of Waterloo. ¬†Maura and Gordon have been deeply involved with the TREC program measuring different approaches for accomplishing document reviews with electronically stored information. ¬†They have jointly published a number of cutting edge articles describing their results. Their most recent contribution is a wonderful but highly technical article called “Technology-Assisted Review Can be More Effective and More Efficient Than Exhaustive Manual Review,” XVII:3 Richmond Journal of Law & Technology (Spring 2011) (in press). They have also recently published an article titled “Inconsistent Assessment of Responsiveness in E-Discovery: Difference of Opinion or Human Error?” which was also a topic of discussion at the recent DESI IV conference in Pittsburgh.

This will no doubt be a cutting edge program as Maura and Gordon are covering some very controversial topics but they also have data to back up their opinions.
