kCura is very good at producing summaries of discussions and events both as they occur (usually by tweets from David Horrigan) and by collecting and publishing that instant output in summary form.
If I pick two of kCura’s summaries from Legaltech, it is not simply because I happened to appear in both of them although it is always helpful when somebody else collates the things I am actually involved in. As I write this, Michael Gove MP is getting commendations on Twitter for paying full attention during a Select Committee hearing while enthusiastically tweeting about it. I find that difficult.
The first kCura collation is from our panel New frontiers in international eDiscovery. It consists of a series of photographs and tweets of a panel which included Steve Couling and David Horrigan of kCura, Karyn Harty of McCann FitzGerald, Davin Teo of Alvarez & Marsal and me.
Subjects covered include the General Data Protection Regulation, the growing need for information governance and defensible deletion programmes as a result of the GDPR, cross-border transfers of data from the EU, TAR and machine learning and, not least, David Horrigan’s impersonation of Bill Clinton.
The other collection comes from the Relativity Blog and consists of David Horrigan’s collection of his favourite quotations from the speakers. I appear in it with the suggestion that the GDPR provides the hitherto missing ROI for information governance.
One of the subjects which I covered on the international panel was the spread of technology-assisted review to Australia. I wrote about that here, and an interview with David Horrigan on the same subject called TAR around the world: next stop, Australia covers the same subject. That came up again in an article by Stuart Hall of kCura called Australia Embraces TAR: 4 Things It Means for E-Discovery in APAC which suggests, among other things, that the developments in the Supreme Court of Victoria bring significant opportunities for practice and thought leaders to emerge throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
