Let’s just get this out of the way: the robots are not going to take your jobs. Actually, they’ll make it easier for you to do your job by taking tedious work off your hands. The world of eDiscovery is definitely changing, but the changes can work to your benefit. As AI continues to become more prominent in the eDiscovery space, try to think of it as more of an assistant, rather than a replacement.

eDiscovery Automated

A major goal of incorporating AI into eDiscovery processes is making those processes more efficient. By using AI to automate certain parts of the legal hold process, organizations have more time to focus on other aspects of litigation.

Now, technology exists to help you automate everything from collection to review. This can prove incredibly useful when you are collecting information to support a case or if you need to review the information you’ve already collected. It can also be used to continously monitor a subject, should you need to consistently gather information for your case.

The future of eDiscovery 

With the increase in dynamic and interactive content over the last several years, eDiscovery has evolved to address these types of data. As technology continues to evolve, how will your team keep up with the constant change?

For many eDiscovery professionals, AI is a major advantage when dealing with these changes. One of the core aspects of AI is its ability to learn from circumstances and to find ways to address them. An AI platform is made up of neural networks, which imitate the way a human brain functions by linking pieces of information together.

For eDiscovery teams, this means you can adapt even more quickly to the introduction of new types of content. For example, if a new social media platform becomes popular, wouldn’t it be easier to have a computer do the work of learning how to preserve that new site instead wasting valuable manpower on the task?

Bringing eDiscovery into the Interactive Age

We’re experiencing more dynamic content than ever, as brands continue to incorporate customized experiences for consumers. Many of the platforms that you use on a daily basis have incorporated interactive features like bots and responsive forms. For eDiscovery professionals, the ability to capture these content forms with ease can be the difference in endless hours spent working to collect information from these types of content and using valuable time to focus on preparation for the litigation at hand.

At Hanzo, we're creating a seamless eDiscovery experience, so that your organization can build a efficient and effective process.
