ASU – Arkfeld Electronic Discovery Conference

Screen Shot 2014-03-15 at 7.26.37 AMYesterday I had the pleasure of providing the concluding remarks at the ASU – Arkfeld Electronic Discovery Conference in Tempe, Arizona.  It was a really good mix of practicing lawyers, judges and technology providers in the room.  Kudos to Michael Arkfeld, Josh Abbott and the rest of the planning committee for a great conference!

Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning for Electronic Discovery – Mike Bommarito Guest Lecture in Katz / Candeub Course

Yesterday I asked fellow Computational Legal Studies blogger Mike Bommarito to give an expert and fairly technical guest lecture in my e-Discovery seminar. Here is what Mike wrote over at his blog and the slides he generated for class are featured below.

“This seminar, taught jointly between Professor Daniel Martin Katz and Professor Adam Candeub, is an excellent example of MSU’s strategic pivot to deliver practical, 21st-century skills to their students. The goal of the talk was to provide students with the ability to understand and communicate with their discovery and predictive coding software vendors and service providers with respect to the underlying mechanics of predictive coding. It was a pleasure to present to these students, and I would encourage anyone interested to follow up by email with any questions they might have.”
