Robot Stories: How storytelling narratives will be part of machine learning in the not-too distant future as told from the perspective of the robots. This is the second in a series of instructional cartoons on predictive coding; what it is now, and what it could be. The first was Bad Robot! A Story of Ethics and Predictive Coding in the Not-Too-Distant Future. The cute robots have now been named by readers in Vote For Your Favorite Robot Names where the winning names were: BYTE and SWITCH. These are much funnier names than the old Star Wars storytellers, C3PO and R2D2, or the senior partners at the law firm of Robot, Robot & Hwang, Apollo Cluster and Daria XR-1029.
For background on the storytelling approach to document review in general, not just predictive coding based review, see the prior guest blog by Bill Hamilton and Larry Chapin: Storytelling: The Shared Quest For Excellence in Document Review. This is one of several methods that can and should be used to enhance the quality and consistency of document review. I have heard that a few document review teams are already using some narrative techniques. This animation considers more advanced applications in the context of machine learning. For best effect open the video to full screen and pause to allow the streaming video to download.
Perhaps some review companies and software companies are interested in these ideas and are ready to put them into action in a machine learning context? If so, please contact me as I have several more ideas on how to do that.
