AI Uses In E-discovery You May Not Know About
March 20, 2023
There are several practical applications of AI technology besides predictive coding that are proven effective in streamlining e-discovery. Identification of near-duplicate documents, for example, multiple revisions of a single document, or a document that has been “printed” to PDF format. AI technology can be used to group textually-similar documents together, allowing for faster review of large amounts of records. In respect to language, projects involving international custodians mean document collections often involve multiple languages. AI technology increases review efficiency by identifying primary and secondary languages on all documents in a data set, enabling them to be directed to review teams proficient in those languages. The above-referenced article discusses several other uses for AI in e-discovery. Those technologies have proven useful in many projects, especially review, which has historically been the most expensive phase of the e-discovery lifecycle.
