One Hour Keyword Search
Keyword searching as an assessment tool has taken a beating of late. Cases such as U.S v. O'Keefe and Victor Stanley v. Creative Pipe have questioned the adequacy of the practice, while a TREC study found keyword searching insufficient to retrieve relevant documents. It's not surprising that litigators are feeling less than confident about key words, and especially regarding their role in Early Case Assessment. But how else to identify and rate relevant documents? New technology is being developed which evaluates relevancy in a different way - by using human experts and smart technology together to find, rank, and review relevant documents with unparalleled accuracy and rapidity. This paper will explore this new technology and shine light on an alternative to keyword searching that may well be the future of Early Case Assessment.
