Bad Robot!

Bad_RobotA STORY OF ETHICS AND PREDICTIVE CODING IN THE NOT-TOO-DISTANT FUTURE. Yes, by popular demand of younger readers, my e-discovery short animations are back. (I can almost hear the groaning of the literati readers!) This is the first in a series of quickie-fun videos to teach predictive coding and related topics. This first one also includes ethics. These lessons will all be told from the point of view of the Robots. And funky comic retro Robots at that! They embody the machine learning algorithms in the not-too-distant future of interactive document review. Literati, please put aside any prejudices you may have against videos and cartoons and give this new style of teaching a try. It may even become a new secret guilty pleasure. I know I had a blast creating them. For best effect open the video to full screen.

Come up with a name for the two robots, and win a prize. I’m thinking Click and Clack, but that’s not too original, I know. Please send me an email or leave your suggestion in the comment box below. Winner gets a free copy of any one of my e-discovery books; your choice.
