Everlaw AI Clustering – New World or New Take?

Everlaw’s announcement of a ‘New World of #ediscovery’ peaked my interest. Frankly, I have not been inspired by any concept analytics since @SkipWalter recruited me into Attenex 15+ years ago. At first glance, the new Everlaw concept clustering bears a lot of resemblance to Attenex Patterns. Is Everlaw’s new clustering revolutionary? Not in my opinion, but that does not lessen the potential market impact. [...]

The Great Resignation, Return or Reshuffle? Part 2

A recent Zapier survey on the future of work polled 600 #knowledgeworkers from SMB companies. 64% said that remote work makes them more productive. While they feel more productive, how can remote professionals demonstrate that productivity without giving up their privacy?   The Great Reshuffle is about the evolving employee-employer relationship more than just where we perform that work. Monitoring utilization, security and work [...]

LegalWeek 2022 eDJ Briefings – Take 2

Continuing my provider briefings from a hectic couple of days in NY. Enjoy. IPRO Dean Brown – CEO; Beckie Schuerenberg - Content Marketing Manager Dean Brown and ParkerGale Capital have transformed IPRO’s collection of overlapping #eDiscovery point products into a broader #InfoGov solution stack on a unified cloud architecture. IPRO seems to have integrated the NetGovern and ZyLab to broaden the platform to straddle [...]

LegalWeek 2022 eDJ Briefings – Take 1

For some of the new readers, eDJ Briefings are a chance to catch up with the latest from providers kind enough to sit down with me and talk candidly. At Legal Week I no longer do formal presentations or demos. Instead I ask execs to give me the top three points they would like to convey to you and the market. We sometimes get [...]

Will We Use Our A.I. Superpowers for Good?

“ALPHA10X Emerges from Stealth With $9.4 Million In Seed Funding and Expands Leadership Team to Bring Artificial Intelligence to Life Sciences Investment” caught my attention. I am always interested in new applications of #ArtificialIntelligence and mistakenly thought that this startup applied analytics to medical research or patient outcomes. We are still in a pandemic with a broken healthcare system and overloaded medical professionals. Imagine [...]

100% Retention as a Knowledge Strategy – Case Study

The majority of corporate professional knowledge workers shifted to remote or hybrid working in 2020. Working from home has challenged many HR, legal and compliance departments to adapt their policies and acceptable use guidelines. Video online meetings and continuous chat channels are essential tools to keep internal/external teams virtually connected. Prior to the pandemic, most of my clients viewed meeting recordings and multi-party chat [...]

Does Fiduciary Duty in Adversarial System Engender Confirmation Bias in eDiscovery?

Charles Chaffin’s Numb: How the Information Age Dulls Our Senses and How We Can Get them Back on confirmation bias got me thinking about our new generation A.I. review systems. Legal practitioners have long known about the dangers of confirmation bias blinding them to key facts adverse to their client’s positions. I am not an attorney and will not opine on counsel’s duties or [...]

eDJ Brief: Exterro’s New Review Platform

A.I. driven review platforms seem to be a hot trend. First Reveal Data, followed by Relativity’s acquisition of Text IQ and now Exterro releasing a new review offering based on ‘deep learning’.  I always want to understand the tech and mythologies underlying solutions. Ajith Samuel and Bill Piwonka at Exterro were kind enough to walk me through Exterro’s investments in A.I. going back to [...]

Nuix IPO – Autonomy Take Two?

Despite the recent drop in share prices ($11.86 down to $2.47), public ASIC investigations, executive departures and now AFP raids, I still believe that last November’s bully Nuix IPO was a signal of the world market’s appetite in legal technology. It would be a shame if the two largest eDiscovery transactions to date both proved to have cooked their books. For those of you [...]
