Planet Data CTO Michael R. Wade to Speak at Carmel Valley eDiscovery Retreat

WHO: Michael R Wade, chief technology officer of Planet Data, an experienced leader in eDiscovery technology and workflow solutions, will present as a part of a panel at the upcoming Carmel Valley eDiscovery Retreat. Planet Data is a global innovator in the creation and development of defensible legal technologies, services and solutions.

WHERE: Cypress Ballroom, Monterey Plaza Hotel in Monterey, California.

WHEN: Tuesday, July 24. 2:45pm - 3:45pm.

WHAT: Moderated by industry analyst Greg Buckles, co-founder and principle analyst at eDiscovery Journal, Michael Wade will speak as an expert on the panel: Technology Assisted Review (TAR) – Are eyes on every item needed? The panel will focus on TAR and how early TAR adopters report using it for ECA, QC and tiered review. However, they still report having human eyes on every document collected.

As such, some of the questions Mr. Wade and other panelists will seek to answer are;

  • When can you reasonably rely on TAR to designate relevance?
  • What is a realistic threshold to stop training the system?
  • Can you defend productions if most items were designated by the system?
The Carmel Valley eDiscovery retreat is now in it’s second year. The retreat gives thought leaders in the eDiscovery industry the chance to interact in a collegial atmosphere. During the retreat attendees will explore the latest issues affecting the eDiscovery industry and develop strategic directions.
