LegalTech Plenary Session on TAR and New Book Available TAR for Smart People

At LegalTech NY, Catalyst CEO will moderate the 12:30 p.m. Feb. 3 all-star plenary session, "Taking TAR to the Next Level: Recent Research and the Promise of Continuous Active Learning," featuring panelists Maura R. Grossman and Gordon V. Cormack, two of the e-discovery industry's leading researchers; U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew J. Peck, author of the first court decision to authorize TAR in e-discovery; and Susan Nielsen Hammond, e-discovery and forensics counsel for Regions Financial Corporation.

Catalyst will also release Tredennick’s new book, TAR for Smart People: How Technology Assisted Review Works and Why it Matters for Legal Professionals. The book serves as a practitioners' guide to TAR and Continuous Active Learning (CAL). Recognizing that TAR is a sophisticated process that draws on science, technology and law, Tredennick set out to write a book that explains the basics of TAR while also exploring advanced issues and applications.


Tredennick is available for expert commentary on TAR and Continous Active Learning (CAL). Tredennick's writings on CAL—which is the protocol used by Catalyst's TAR engine, Insight Predict—have sparked debate among e-discovery industry leaders over several key issues, such as whether subject matter experts are required to train a TAR system and how best to measure recall in e-discovery review.
