Predictive coding

eDiscovery in SA - Basic guide to Technology Assisted Review for SA

TAR, or as some say, predictive coding is arguably the most important feature of eDiscovery technology. It has actually been around since 2010 but become more used as the years (and the technology) have progressed. Now in the UK, US and Ireland, that I know of, there have been decided cases advocating or ordering its use in appropriate cases. I also know it is used in other parts of the world but as yet it has not been used in SA to the best of my knowledge and belief. Perhaps that is not surprising given that we do not even have eDiscovery as part of our Uniform Rules but it does not mean that this fantastic technology cannot be used here right now if the case warrants it.
