Law Technology News: O’Melveny’s Fowler Discusses Predictive Coding at ALM's LegalTech

May 24, 2012 The May 23, 2012, Law Technology News article, “Challenging Predictive Coding to Better Defend It,” cites remarks made by O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner Jeffrey Fowler during a May 22 panel discussion on predictive coding at ALM’s LegalTech conference. Fowler is one of the founders and leaders of O'Melveny's Electronic Discovery and Document Retention Practice and resides in the Firm's Los Angeles office.

Fowler was a panelist for "Under Fire: Defending and Challenging Technology-Assisted Review,” part of the conference’s "Litigation Technology: Trends, Technology, and Innovation" track. The panel discussion addressed predictive coding in electronic data discovery, which is “the process of taking a subset of a data collection, and having senior litigators mark certain documents as responsive or non-responsive and then the software ‘learns’ from these decisions,” according to the article.
