    Event Summary:
    eDiscovery applications come in many different forms. But regardless the use case, the common factor is always about reducing the volume of discoverable data, structuring information, finding the relevant facts and keep a firm grip on your data.

    New techniques from the field of Data Science Artificial Intelligence (AI) have made eDiscovery smarter, faster and easier, as well as drastically reducing review costs. And these advanced eDiscovery techniques can improve organizational business processes in more ways than just during litigation.

    Techniques that he will cover are:
    -Direct Collecting from various data locations, including Microsoft O365, Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and several other locations or repository formats.
    -Deep processing, data enrichment and advanced analytics allowing the most aggressive culling, highly reducing data volumes.
    -Advanced search, text—mining, topic modeling and other advanced data analytics and visualizations providing deep insights in the real problems and allowing an organization to estimate projects complexities and resources better in a very early phase of the project.
    -Review Accelerators like TAR, Automatic Redaction, Bulk Review to reduce the time and cost needed for review, investigations and productions.

    Dr. Alexander Duisberg will discuss AI and the privacy conundrum – a challenge for eDiscovery, which will include:
    -AI and privacy risks – a new chapter under the GDPR?
    -Ringfencing through anonymisation and pseudonymisation
