New York, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
UBIC North America, Inc. a provider of end-to-end eDiscovery and digital forensics solutions and services for corporations and law firms, has introduced version 4.0 of its Lit i View™ eDiscovery solution that accurately handles English- and Asian-language characters, encoding schemes and native file systems. Version 4.0 incorporates a new predictive coding function that uses an exclusive UBIC algorithm that is unique to each case and based on texts that have undergone a sample review.
The predictive coding function enables automated identification of context relevant text in Asian-language reducing the number of steps in the review process and thereby cutting the time and cost of document review.
“UBIC’s proprietary predictive coding technology is a giant leap forward in the eDiscovery process because it helps organizations reduce the time and risk involved in eDiscovery review, enabling successful litigation strategy,” commented UBIC Founder and CEO Masahiro Morimoto. “This is particularly true when the process involves Asian characters that can add large incremental costs. UBIC’s experience and innovative technology provide our clients with the “best of breed” method for an intuitive and flexible workflow that maps to the specific requirements of each case.”
UBIC’s predictive coding feature is different from other solutions in terms of the protocol analyzer and workflow management. As reviewers tag documents, the software identifies tagging criteria common across those documents, enabling the software to “predict” the reviewer’s coding across all case documents. This requires fewer documents to be reviewed manually and accelerates the review process.
Overview of Predictive Coding Features of Lit i View 4.0:
Prediction Insight: Automatically provides a prediction score for the document under review and metadata relevant to the prediction. Users can quickly assess how the prediction was generated to improve prediction accuracy and make consistent review decisions, improving defensibility.
Workflow Management: Provides a review management console with step-by-step guidance that automates the predictive coding workflow, allowing users to utilize predictive coding immediately while achieving optimal results.
