Using Data Science in the Real World: Can Big Data put the Art back into eDiscovery?
Understanding the data problem and learning how it is changing every facet of business, including the legal department.
Guest Speaker: Chris Sexton of Conduent
December 13, 2017 at 12:00 noon
@ K&L Gates, 925 Fourth Avenue, Seattle
We will take a look at current approaches to big data in the enterprise and apply them to litigation and compliance reviews. Corporate legal departments are undergoing incredible change, with ever-increasing pressure on performance and value. Amidst all the talk about the “end of e-discovery” or the commoditization of the industry, can discovery data be leveraged in a new, more valuable way? Using everyday language and real-life examples, Chris will decode the mystery of data science techniques (such as principal component analysis and cross validation) in a way that is compelling, relevant and entertaining, in order to give you an understanding of how data engineering completely transforms document review workflows.
