Content Analyst® to Provide CLE Track on eDiscovery Breakthroughs at LegalTech 2016

Content Analyst Company LLC, developer of the market-leading CAAT® text analytics engine, announced today that the company will host a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) track at the LegalTech 2016 conference in New York City on Thursday, February 4, 2016 at the New York Hilton.

Entitled, “eDiscovery Breakthroughs: Analytics and the Changing Face of Discovery,” this highly informative and educational conference track explores the changing face of an analytics-powered eDiscovery world that echoes consumer expectations in finding information more intelligently through examples.  In eDiscovery, analytics techniques such as predictive coding, email threading, textual near dupe, dynamic clustering and conceptual search make the entire review process easier and more efficient.  Several real world case studies are presented by the litigation teams themselves along with the vendors who enabled their clients’ successes.

All sessions will be moderated by Ari Kaplan, Principal, Ari Kaplan Advisors. Details of each session are as follows:

10:30 - 11:45 AM: Dancing with the Stars of eDiscovery: Case Studies in eDiscovery Powered by Analytics

eDiscovery practitioners have paired up with their software vendors to show their best litigation dance steps as they each present case studies in eDiscovery powered by analytics. See how clients saved millions of dollars and countless person-hours by putting analytics in motion with the grace and elegance of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. 

Panelists include:

  • Drew Lewis -- Vice President of Innovation, General Counsel, Paragon;
    and Iram Arras - Vice President, Product Strategy, iCONECT

12:15 - 1:30 PM: Consumerization and eDiscovery: How Pandora, Netflix and Amazon are Changing eDiscovery Expectations through Analytics 

Consumer applications such as Pandora music service, Netflix and Amazon have changed the way we expect information to be presented to us as consumers. Consumers now expect services such as these to anticipate and present more relevant information based on examples as an indication of interest, powered by advanced analytics. 

Litigation practitioners and corporate counsel should expect the same from their eDiscovery software – finding what they’re looking for without having to specifically ask for it by name, and using predictive coding to find similar documents and tag them as responsive or privileged.  Come see real life examples of how sophisticated advanced analytics are used in eDiscovery much like they are with consumer applications used by hundreds of millions of people every day, to more intelligently and efficiently process massive amounts of data into manageable and cost-effective collections.

Panelists include:

  • Jeff Fehrman -- Chief Strategy Officer, Mindseye
  • Jawahar Jaddu -- Director, Product Management, Consilio
  • Hunter McMahon -- Vice President of Legal & Consulting Services, Altep
