Founder and CTO of Digital Reef to speak at the 8th Annual-Advanced eDiscovery Institute event, on a panel titled “Behind the Black Box”.

Digital Reef, a leading software provider of the first massively scalable and open solutions for eDiscovery and Early Case Assessment (ECA) providing the fastest and smartest path to legal review, is a sponsor of the 8th Annual-Advanced eDiscovery Institute event November 17-18. During the first day of the event, Founder and CTO of Digital Reef, Steve Akers, will speak on decoding advanced eDiscovery analytic technology.

No one disputes that concept searching, near-duplicate cluster, document clustering, predictive coding, and related analytic technologies can help reduce the burden of eDiscovery. Yet, the fear that many attorneys have regarding their ability to explain these methods, has limited their widespread adoption. Add the reluctance of some service providers to reveal the inner workings of their technology and the problem is compounded. The “Behind the Black Box” panel will peel back the cover of these tools and explain in simple terms, how they work in practice.

When: Thursday, November 17, 2011 4:15-5:30 EST    
Where: The 8th Annual Advanced eDiscovery Institute

Panel highlights:
-A look at where analytics fit into the EDRM and the discovery process
-How analytics operate on data and how mathematical processes are “enabled” by representing documents as something “mathematics” can understand
-Tips for providing better more accurate review outcomes within the justice system through the intersection of human interaction and mathematical rigor
