Selecting TAR Software and Service Providers?

Technology Assisted Review (TAR) is useful for many tasks within the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), with one of its central applications being its use in determining the relevancy of documents in the review stage of eDiscovery in support of document production obligations. To engage in the management of this important workflow, the producing party needs access to TAR software and the decision on what software to use goes hand-in-hand with the service provider selection.

EDRM Releases Technology-Assisted Review Guidelines

EDRM has released a comprehensive set of guidelines that aim to objectively define and explain technology-assisted review for members of the judiciary and the legal profession. The TAR Guidelines represent the first step in a multifaceted effort to develop a broad understanding of TAR and to encourage its adoption. Under the auspices of the Bolch Judicial Institute and EDRM, a second document, a protocol for when and under what circumstances TAR should be used, is currently being developed by a drafting team of 40 judges, lawyers, and e-discovery experts who attended a 2017 conference focused on TAR best practices, hosted by Duke and EDRM.

The Importance of Contextual Diversity in Technology Assisted Review

Contextual diversity refers to documents that are different from the ones already seen and judged by human reviewers. The contextual diversity algorithm identifies documents based on how significant and how different they are from the ones already seen and then selects training documents that are the most representative of those unseen topics for human review.
