KENSINGTON, Md., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Equivio, a provider of analytical solutions for e-discovery, today announced that it will be hosting an exclusive, full-day educational seminar on the essentials of predictive coding on March 5, 2013 in Washington DC.

This invitation-only complimentary event is focused on informing and instructing corporations and law firms in the "how" and "why" of predictive coding. Using real-world case studies, this seminar provides the fundamental knowledge that litigators, e-discovery counsel, corporations and firms require to use, manage and make decisions about the implementation of predictive coding technology.

This is the second such seminar in Equivio's "Predictive Coding Educational Series." Feedback received from the first event, held in December in New York, demonstrated the participants' keen desire to learn more about predictive coding.

Richard P. Perrin, e-discovery Counsel at Dickstein Shapiro LLP, who attended the event, commented, "This was an outstanding conference. Very informative speakers and participants. It was a great learning experience."

The agenda for the March seminar consists of sessions delivered by industry leaders in e-discovery as well as Equivio subject matter experts, and covers the following topics:

  • High-level overview of classification technologies and concepts for both lawyers and technologists
  • Use case scenarios, including early case assessment, culling, prioritized review, and quality assurance for review
  • Basic statistical concepts used in predictive coding, including richness, recall and precision
  • Guidelines for a predictive coding engagement, reviewing a standard process flow for managing predictive coding projects
  • How to select a predictive coding tool for your organization, covering a baseline set of expectations and criteria for the evaluation of predictive coding applications

"As the hype around predictive coding continues to increase, it is important for law firms, corporate counsel and government agencies to have a forum for objective information about predictive coding," said Kit Goetz, Vice President, Litigation Discovery at Qualcomm Incorporated, and a member of the Advisory Board to Equivio's Predictive Coding Educational Series. "The Equivio seminar is aimed at sharing the knowledge and real-life experience of early users of predictive coding, and easing the way to wider use of this technology."
