EDI, Oracle Team to Put TAR to the Test
The Electronic Discovery Institute is ready to undertake an academic study of technology-assisted review and has chosen the study's chief scientists, Stanford University's Peter Glynn and Gerd Infanger, writes Monica Bay.
In an announcement Tuesday night, Patrick Oot, special counsel for e-discovery at the SEC and co-founder of EDI, said the study would build on research by The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)'s Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) Legal Track and EDI's original study on document review. Oracle's litigation team will partner in the study, which will run tests on actual data from a closed matter.
