I recently wrote an article challenging the belief that subject matter experts (SMEs) are required for training the system in technology-assisted review. (See: Subject Matter Experts: What Role Should They Play in TAR 2.0 Training?) This view, held by almost everyone involved with TAR, stems from the common-sense notion that consistency and, ultimately, correctness are critical to a successful ranking process. Indeed, Ralph Losey made that case eloquently in his blog post: “Less Is More: When it comes to predictive coding training, the ‘fewer reviewers the better’ – Part One.” He argues that one SME is the “gold standard” for the job.
