Predictive coding technologies promise to radically reduce the time and cost of review - the most expensive part of the eDiscovery process - while at the same time increasing accuracy. Predictive coding is uniquely suited to government agencies that confront massive amounts of information on a daily basis, and are demanding more accuracy and efficiency to what are today, extremely manual and divergent processes. However, both agencies and respondents must also ensure, in light of recent court cases, that their use of predictive coding technology is defensible. Join our expert panel to explore in detail the use cases for predictive coding technologies in the government investigations and litigation.
