Program Summary

Legal departments are increasingly under pressure to implement AI and show senior management that the legal department is innovative and able to gain efficiency through the use of AI. Many legal departments may not realize that they may already be using AI in eDiscovery. AI and machine learning have been in use for more than a decade to locate responsive documents and streamline eDiscovery. In this session, we will explore the essence of AI, its practical applications in eDiscovery, such as streamlining document search and retrieval, and its use in identifying privileges, highly confidential business information, and personal data. We will discuss other places in the eDiscovery process where AI may be leveraged in the future. In addition, we will consider how people and the process are essential to making AI/machine learning tools work effectively. Finally, we will address eDiscovery preservation and collection obligations for organizations using AI and machine learning within the business.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Essence of AI
  • Practical applications in eDiscovery
  • AI use in identifying privilege, highly confidential business information, and personal data
  • eDiscovery preservation and collection obligations
