Our experts will address common questions, such as:

  • What are the current legal rulings affecting TAR?
  • How do you know when to defensibly end a review?
  • How do I counter bias?

You’ll take away key concepts on how TAR and CAL work. Even if you’re not using machine learning on your next case, you will understand it better in order to validate claims made by vendors and opposing parties.
