Catalyst Presents August 7 Webinar on TAR 2.0

E-Discovery Experts to Discuss What Lawyers Need to Know About Advances in Technology Assisted Review and Next-Generation Predictive Ranking Engines

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2014) - Recent advances have made technology assisted review (TAR) more powerful and flexible. It is more important than ever that e-discovery professionals understand the differences among TAR engines and the implications of these new capabilities for their legal matters.

On Thursday, August 7, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET, Catalyst -- the leader in secure, cloud-based e-discovery software that simplifies e-discovery for corporate counsel and law firms -- will present a live webinar covering the latest advances in TAR. Participants will learn how TAR 2.0 and the next generation of predictive ranking technologies overcome TAR's initial limitations. They will also learn how to deploy the latest TAR engines cost-effectively in real-world legal matters.

The webinar, "TAR 2.0: What You Need to Know about the Next Generation of Predictive Coding Engines," features e-discovery experts John Tredennick, Esq., Catalyst founder and CEO, and Mark Noel, Esq., Catalyst's managing director of professional services. They will discuss:

  • New research from the Association for Computing Machinery that determines which TAR training protocols (e.g., active vs. passive) are the most efficient and effective
  • Training with random samples vs. active modeling, determining which is most effective in particular use cases and overcoming potential bias in non-random approaches
  • New ways to deploy TAR that go beyond traditional review for production, reducing time and cost for a range of e-discovery tasks, including real-world examples
  • How much time and money can you reasonably expect to save using advanced tools and workflows
  • A checklist of considerations and best practices when selecting TAR systems for specific cases or tasks

TAR has revolutionized e-discovery, saving time and money by dramatically and defensibly reducing review populations. But first-generation systems have sometimes proven ineffective when dealing with the real-world problems of e-discovery, depending too heavily on training by subject matter experts and relying on manual updating as the review process progressed. TAR 2.0 overcomes these limitations by allowing continuous active learning, continuous ranking and training by review teams. With the power and flexibility to handle a diverse array of tasks within any size case or investigation, these new capabilities broaden the uses of TAR, resulting in greater time and cost savings.
