    Thanks, Ralph for another useful insightful blog. I particularly want to reiterate this from your comments above: “Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think that AI is a panacea. Well trained lawyers are still indispensable. Ever heard the expression garbage in, garbage out? There is no substitute for skilled human judgments, but now our limited human intelligence and processing speed can be enhanced with predictive coding and other forms of computer assisted document review and analysis.”

    I think that you got this exactly right. It is not man (or woman) vs. machine. It is how can we reduce the tedium and inefficiency of human review to make it more accurate, more consistent, faster, and cheaper?

    Ralph, you have suggested 2 uses for AI in litigation document management: search & cull, and then perform/speed up the actual review itself. May I suggest a third use? Consider the case where you are not the producing party, but rather the receiving party. No matter what it is you have asked to be produced to you, it is effectively a “data dump” from someone else that is headed your way. There are many cases where the data being received from opposing or third parties far outweighs the volume of data your side is producing! In these cases, AI is a wonderful tool to help organize and sort the incoming data into useful mechanisms to help address 2 important questions: what is all this? and do I care about any of it?

  10. […] Jason Baron’s depressing prophesy of information dystopia, where we all drown in a flood of information, is no prophetic dream. It is a realistic assessment of the current state of the law and the discovery of electronic evidence. The reality today is that the vast majority of lawyers avoid the discovery of information in computers, even though that is where the truth lies. They have a prejudice against it. They believe in the inherent superiority of paper. We all know that most of the truth left the paper filing cabinets over a decade ago (with the sole exception, perhaps, of the federal government), yet most lawyers still look there, and only there, for justice. Jason’s dream of extreme information overload is a projection of the current reality getting worse. He speaks the truth, but only if we don’t do something about it, if we don’t continue in the never-ending battle. Truth and justice can triumph. It must. […]
