Professor publishes article on predictive coding and litigation privilege
Professor Gideon Christian has published an article in the Canadian Bar Review.
"Predictive coding: Adopting and adapting artificial intelligence in civil litigation" explores how predictive coding and artificial intelligence (AI) technology can effectively complement the work of lawyers in e-discovery and civil litigation. He discusses whether AI technology in document review complies with court rules on documentary disclosure, and the paper contains some interesting questions on whether litigation privilege applies to seed sets (or training sets) used in training a predictive coding algorithm.
