KENSINGTON, Md., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Equivio, a provider of analytical solutions for e-discovery, today announced a new "Predictive Coding Minus the Hype" educational Webinar Series. The series offers e-discovery counsel and technologists training in the key fundamentals of predictive coding. The three-part series, offered at no cost, debuts Wednesday, June 26 at 12:00PM Eastern/9:00AM Pacific with "A Primer on Classification Technologies," presented by Avi Elkoni, Vice President of Regional Sales for Equivio.
Equivio's new webinar series is an outgrowth of the strong response generated by the company's recent predictive coding live educational events. These well-attended events, held earlier this year in New York City, Washington DC and San Francisco, demonstrated the need for top-quality education on aspects of predictive coding—one of the hottest topics in e-Discovery. Following the success of these events, Equivio has been inundated with requests from the e-discovery community for a webinar format for the educational series.
"Equivio is pleased to help lead the effort to educate the legal community about predictive coding. There is a good deal of misinformation about this subject," stated Amir Milo, Chief Executive Officer, Equivio. "Our new webinar series is designed to separate the facts from the hype and give attendees objective, reliable and actionable information on predictive coding."
"A Primer on Classification Technologies" will cover a subject area that is often discussed but rarely understood. The one-hour webinar will explain the differences between key concepts such as supervised versus unsupervised learning; syntactic and semantic algorithms; and random sampling versus active learning.
The presenter for the June 26 event is Avi Elkoni, Vice President of Regional Sales at Equivio. Mr. Elkoni has been a software engineer and development manager for more than 20 years. A frequent speaker at conferences and trade shows, Mr. Elkoni specializes in helping bridge the gap between people and technology.
Equivio's complimentary, three-part "Predictive Coding Minus the Hype" Webinar Series is designed to give attendees the knowledge base they need to successfully use, manage and make decisions about predictive coding. Future events include "Legal Aspects of Predictive Coding" on July 17, to be presented by Conor Crowley; and "A Primer on Statistics" on August 7 by Avi Elkoni.
