Information Governance (InfoGovernance) is the specification of decision rights and an accountability framework to encourage desirable behavior in the valuation, creation, storage, use, archiving and deletion of information. It includes the processes, roles, standards and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information to enable an organization to achieve its goals. Information governance should be an element in planning an enterprise's information architecture.

(Gartner Hype Cycle for Legal and Regulatory Information Governance, 2009, December 2009).

An Engagement Area (EA) is an area where the commander of a military force intends to contain and destroy an enemy force with the massed effects of all available weapons systems.

(FM 1-02, Operational Terms and Graphics, September 2004).

Technology Assisted Review: The Limitations of Textual Analysis


A Challenge with Technology-Assisted Review

Provided for your review is a short but important comment from a recent LinkedIn Group discussion on the evaluation of machine learning protocols for technology-assisted review.  The discussion originated with the availability of a new paper published by well known technology-assisted review experts, Attorney Maura Grossman and Professor Gordon Cormack.  The paper, “Evaluation of Machine-Learning Protocols for Technology-Assisted Review in Electronic Discovery, was prepared for The 37th Annual ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval.
The comment shared (see below) addressed key points in the paper and advanced the discussion beyond the evaluation of machine learning techniques into the questioning of a greater issue with technology-assisted review. That issue, as stated in the comment, is the fact that current technology-assisted review systems are limited to text.
This comment is worthy of careful consideration as it:
  1. Highlights the fact that this limitation calls into question the true effectiveness of text-based technology-assisted review tools.
  2. Begs the question of what classification tools are the best choice for technology-assisted review if almost all current tools are in fact limited to text.


Comment by Joe Howie of BeyondRecognition*

Interesting – Cormack and Grossman define the “TAR Problem” as not knowing about a data set at the outset (p. 2); point out that simple key term searching to select the seed set improves the performance of all TAR protocols (p. 7); and indicate that some protocols have difficulty with low prevalence or low richness collections (p.9). Visual classification impacts those issues plus addresses the implicit issue that TAR is text-restricted (i.e., should actually be called TR-TAR).
Visual classification classifies visually similar documents whether or not text is contained in them, and reviewing one document per classification provides an awareness of a collection’s content that overcomes a possible initial lack of knowledge. The classifications also provide a far more granular and meaningful tool for selecting documents than simple text searching. By eliminating plainly unresponsive document types, reviewers can increase the richness of the remaining documents, and may in fact be able to identify which specific attributes which make documents responsive, thereby short cutting the need to “predict” which documents are responsive.
Since the last century, text analysis has been the primary tool used to classify documents, but its durability as the tool of choice doesn’t mean that it remains the best choice.
* The comment was used by express permission of its contributor, Joe Howie of BeyondRecognition.


Future Consideration

Like many, I find the discussion and commentary on this issue quite interesting and certainly expect that the issue raised in the comment will spark relevant discussion among providers, consumers and commentators on the topic of technology-assisted review.

And Now A Break (And Message From Our Sponsor)

Weekly Update Sabbatical from ComplexDiscovery

Beginning in late 2006 I began regularly compiling news updates around the discipline of eDiscovery and sharing them with others.  These updates originated as internal competitive updates for companies that I worked with and expanded over the years to include external updates of legal technology areas ranging from the cloud to compliance.  Leveraging communications conduits from blogs and emails to LinkedIn and Twitter, the sharing of information in the form of these regular updates has been an incredible learning experience.
While I plan to track and selectively post industry news and views via this blog, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Facebook, I am going to take a short sabbatical from publishing the ComplexDiscovery-centric weekly updates (Vendor Clips, Weekly eDiscovery Digest and Actionable Intelligence) and the corresponding weekly email newsletter.  By definition a sabbatical is any extended period of leave from one’s customary work, especially for rest, to acquire news skills, or training.  So I look forward to repurposing some of the personal time I have devoted to aggregating content for the ComplexDiscovery weekly updates to investigate new communications tools, techniques and content.  I certainly plan to post and write on technology topics as I have since attending the first Blogger Con at Harvard in 2003, but will just be taking a break from the weekly exercise of aggregating posts for regular weekly updates.  Feel free to visit the companion Twitter feeds for@VendorClips@ComplexD and @ActionableINT for non-aggregated, yet still timely news updates on these areas of interest.
Thanks for your interest.
