Talk, Fun, and Occasionally Some Useful Information About AI and the Law

TAR Talk is a 20 minute (or so) podcast coming live from our virtual front porch, where Tom,  John and Dr. J. (sometimes with guests) yak about issues relating to the use of AI (often machine learning) in the legal world. 

We began by talking about an AI-enhanced process in electronic discovery many call Technology Assisted Review (that’s what the TAR part means). Over the years, we have broadened our focus to gabbing about how artificial intelligence is changing the practice of law and the delivery of legal services. And, if pushed, we will talk about any other legal technology topic that comes to mind. 

During these podcasts, Tom,  John and Dr. J  (joined by Mary Mack our fearless leader at EDRM) will share  knowledge, talk to  guests, discuss current research and practices and try to hit at least one issue of importance to legal professionals in each session. They will also offer bad analogies, make even worse jokes and generally make fun of themselves and their guests. The only thing they won’t do (if you are lucky) is offer advice on how to fix your car–but we loved the name.

Episode 18: We Welcome AI Scientist Dave Lewis to the Porch

In this episode we get a chance to visit with Dave Lewis, Executive Vice President of Reveal – Brainspace – AI.  We speak with Dave about his journey in the science of information retrieval, his early work with TAR and then dive into his paper, “On Minimizing Cost in Legal Document Review Workflows.”

Dave’s paper attempts to determine the relative costs associated with what he calls one or two phase review, terms sometimes associated with Simple Active Learning and TAR 1.0 and Continuous Active Learning®, often associated with TAR 2.0. 

Which methodology is best and for what kinds of reviews? Tune into the podcast and find out.
