Description

As some continue to express concern about “black box” technology (i.e. the difficulty in explaining what goes on behind the scenes of software), a better understanding of how to measure, test and defend predictive coding results will improve litigation strategy.

This panel will cover the two major metrics for measuring the efficacy of a predictive coding tool—precision and recall, both which can be measured through statistical sampling. Even though predictive coding technology is more widely accepted, maintaining a process that creates a strong audit trail will help create a highly defensible process.
