I have just recorded the third in a series of short podcasts with James Moeskops, managing director at London eDiscovery provider Millnet. It is available here, without any registration forms to complete.
The first of these podcasts looked at what predictive coding is and a its potential use in UK civil litigation. The second one included contributions from Eversheds who have successfully used predictive coding on a large matter where a first pass with keyword searching had left them with a high proportion of false positives.
In this third podcast, we consider the future of predictive coding. We must get rid of the unthinking notion that predictive coding is some kind of “black box” technology – when I hear that expression, I know that the speaker has not actually looked at it. We also observe that this technology has application which goes beyond civil litigation, most notably for urgent regulatory investigations.
We will do more of these later in the year, turning to procedural developments in UK civil litigation.
