Published: 2013-07-18 13:29:05  In the midst of a summer swoon and a New England heat wave, eDJ and Review Less will launch the Predictive Coding Thought Leadership Series next Monday, July 22 in Philadelphia.  This should be a great event, featuring facilitators from leading law firms like Schnader Harrison, Morgan Lewis and Pepper Hamilton as well as corporate facilitators from companies like Dupont (special thanks to event sponsor AlphaLit for making it possible to bring this cost-effective training to the market).The cost is only $150 for three CLE hours and the opportunity to get detailed education on Predictive Coding.  If you would like to register, you can do so here:  http://pcthoughtleadership.eventbrite.com/.  This series will come to other cities throughout the fall – you can keep track here:  http://ediscoveryjournal.com/programs/predictive-coding-thought-leadership-series/.Predictive Coding (PC) is a type of Technology-Assisted Review (TAR) that propagates known decisions about a sample of documents (e.g. responsive, privileged) to the rest of the documents in a corpus.  In the litigation context, PC leverages advanced analytics technologies, algorithms, and/or machine learning to augment human legal reviewers’ knowledge.  Considering that review makes up the bulk of total eDiscovery costs, PC is hugely impactful just within that one small niche.  Beyond the Legal Review phase, PC promises to improve information governance (IG) activities through more effective and automated records and information classification, better defensible deletion projects, and the ability to address the real challenge of Big Data – analyzing unstructured content in a fast, efficient way.PC is still in the very early stages of adoption.  Because the PC market is still in its early stages, there is a need for objective, unbiased education about how PC works and can be used to make Legal Review more effective, efficient, and high quality.  That is where the Thought Leadership Series comes in.  To meet that need, eDJ has partnered with Karl Shieneman of ReviewLess to offer a three CLE hour event that teaches eDiscovery professionals what they need to know in order to tackle PC.  The event, which has received great reviews, focuses on how PC works, how to validate the results of PC, and what the judiciary thinks of PC (there is a Judicial Roundtable featuring a mix of nationally-known and local Judges).We also created a research report that provides a good framework for understanding PC and the solutions available: Predictive Coding: What You Need To Know Now.Our hope is that this cost-effective education allows people to get the info they need to make the right decisions vis-à-vis PC.  Please give us any feedback that you have and we hope to see you a future event.Barry Murphy can be reached at barry@eDJGroupInc.com for offline comments or questions.
