Best Practices: Technology Assisted Review

Technology assisted review (TAR), also known as predictive coding and computer assisted review, has become a frequently used tool to complete large document reviews quickly and cost efficiently. The promise of fast, accurate computer-assisted coding as a practical solution to increasingly massive collections is encouraging, but understanding various vendor approaches can be confusing and overwhelming. In many cases, there is little, if any, information about how a specific TAR methodology works, creating potential defensibility blind spots and jeopardizing the progress of your case. How can you trust or account for the results of a mystery process? Alternatively, if a methodology is fully disclosed, case teams can evaluate, explain, and justify outcomes with confidence.

Key Points

  • What is Technology Assisted Review (TAR)?
  • How does TAR/Predictive Coding work?
  • Why use TAR/Predictive Coding?
  • Comparing outcomes: predictive coding vs.and manual review
  • Importance of transparency in TAR applications
  • Benefits of scalability in predictive coding architectures
