Only Catalyst's TAR Engine Uses Contextual Diversity Sampling. Visitors to the Catalyst Booth Will Discover Why That Matters

SAN FRANCISCO, June 13, 2015—McDonalds has its secret sauce. Coke has its secret recipe. And Catalyst has Contextual Diversity Sampling—the "secret sauce" that sets apart its Technology Assisted Review engine, Insight Predict, from any other in the market. At Legaltech West Coast July 13 and 14, attendees will be able to see it in action, with ongoing demonstrations at the Catalyst booth.

Insight Predict has already gained recognition as the first commercial TAR 2.0 engine to use Continuous Active Learning, a method shown by independent studies to be superior to other forms of TAR in finding relevant documents and cutting review time. Noted legal technology consultant Brett Burney recently wrote that Predict "is forming the front lines of how the legal profession will be dealing with e-discovery in the coming years."

Because CAL uses seed documents selected by the trial team, and not random seeds, some critics fear that it could bias the system and bypass relevant documents. "You don't know what you don't know," these critics say.

Contextual Diversity Sampling is Catalyst's answer to this concern. It is an algorithm that models the entire review population and actively identifies topics that reviewers may have missed and should examine to determine their potential relevance. It is more effective than random sampling at identifying overlooked pockets of documents.

At Legaltech, the search scientist who led the development of Catalyst's Contextual Diversity Sampling will be on hand to demonstrate how it works. Dr. Jeremy Pickens, one of the world's leading information retrieval scientists, spearheaded the development of Insight Predict.

Join Dr. Pickens at Catalyst's booth (Booth #105) to play a quick card game that illustrates how CAL beats other TAR methods at finding relevant documents and then discuss with him the value of Contextual Diversity Sampling for ensuring that no stone is left unturned.
