Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 05, 2012
Rational Retention today unveiled a new Partner Program designed to offer partners an opportunity to jumpstart a predictive coding practice. Run by world-class experts, the program will provide practical education on machine learning and text classification in e-Discovery, and will detail how the Rational Intelligence platform (http://www.RationalIntel.com) has been applied in the real world. The goal of the program is to give consulting firms the expertise necessary to apply Rational Intelligence and testify in support of it, as well as to evaluate the use of other platforms.
Litigants’ use of machine learning for predictive coding is one of the largest greenfield opportunities for expert services seen in years. Driven by spiraling discovery costs and sparked by emerging judicial acceptance, the market has reached a tipping point; over the next several years, it is likely that billions of dollars of attorney review will be replaced by technology.
However, current adopters lack the understanding and support needed to make informed and strategic decisions about the technology’s application. Litigants on the producing and receiving end of predictively coded documents are leaving themselves wide open to challenges akin to those seen in Da Silva Moore, where plaintiffs, defendants, and the Court were all confused and misinformed. As predictive coding becomes mainstream, real expertise in machine learning and text classification will first be a weapon, then a necessity.
“For Rational Retention, our motivation is simple: not all predictive coding is created equal, and as the maker of the most powerful, transparent, and defensible predictive coding platform available, it is in our best interests to raise the level of discussion. By helping build a community of real expertise, we are certain that the substantial advantages of our platform will become apparent and will help further separate us from the crowd,” said Michael McCreary, CEO of Rational Retention.
