Extract from Max Walters' article "Fraud authority sets ‘robo-lawyer' to work on cases"
The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has today announced that artificial intelligence (AI) which can work 2,000 times faster than a human lawyer will be used on all new casework.
Through automatic document analysis, the agency will be able to ‘investigate more quickly, reduce costs and achieve a lower error rate’ than through the work of human lawyers, it said.
A pilot ‘robot’ able to process more than half a million documents a day, was implemented by the SFO to scan for legal professional privilege content in itscase againstRolls-Royce. The SFO said the new system, called ‘Axcelerate’ and produced by software company OpenText, will be rolled out alongside the ’robot’. The office said this will enable SFO staff to ’better target their work and time in other aspects of investigative and prosecutorial work’.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
