The Role of Statistics in Electronic Discovery

Statistics_Electronic_DiscoveryListen to Karl Schieneman, Founder and Owner of Review Less and friend of JurInnov, talk with nationally known machine enabled learning experts Herb Roitblatt, Chief Scientist with OrcaTec and one of the principals with the influential not for profit E-Discovery Institute, and David Lewis, a consulting computer scientist and a leading researcher in text classification and text mining.  This episode explores the important role of statistics in electronic discovery for both newer software programs as well as traditional linear review approaches. We cover statistical concepts that lawyers should be familiar with when assessing large document collections.  In addition, we discuss how statistical methods such as random sampling can prove useful for arguing the process utilized is defensible and how to figure out if you are heading in the right direction in an active project.
