Listen to Karl Schieneman, Founder and President of Review Less, a predictive coding consultancy, and Adjunct Analyst with the E-Discovery Journal as he moderates what should be a special ESIBytes show discussing recent publication by Dr. Maura Grossman and Dr. Gordon Cormack entitled The Grossman-Cormack Glossary of Technology-Assisted Review published in Volume 7 Issue 1 of the Federal Courts Law Review in 2013. Joining us on this show are the Honorable John M. Facciola from the District of Columbia who wrote the foreword to the Glossary and Maura R. Grossman, Counsel at Wachtell Lipton, Rosen & Katz and and Dr. Gordon V. Cormack Professor from the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario.
The Glossary of Technology-Assisted Review provides 22 pages of technical terms and ground-breaking cases with definitions that relate to the field of predictive coding. These are terms which one can encounter in the field of predictive coding and range from the expected terms like Recall and Precision but also encounter “hair on the back of your neck” terms like “Gaussian Distribution,” “Harmonic Mean,” “Jaccard Index” and many other technical terms. We will discuss why it is so important to have a glossary, move into how to use such a resource, and finally discuss future plans to put this information online for the legal community to update.
