UK eDisclosure Trends for Machine Learning and AI

My latest blog post for IPRO’s blog discusses UK eDisclosure trends for machine learning and AI and whether the UK has even passed us in acceptance of these technologies!

I recently recognized the 10-year anniversary of now retired New York Magistrate Judge Andrew J. Peck issued the ruling in the Da Silva Moore case that was the first court approval of predictive coding in the US (or anywhere else for that matter). Judge Peck’s decision “opened the floodgates” for cases that approved using predictive coding – to a point that it’s no longer a question of whether courts will approve it. And we’re seeing many other use cases for machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in legal technology as well.

UK courts got a later start regarding predictive coding acceptance, but UK eDisclosure trends for machine learning and AI may have caught up quickly with eDiscovery trends on this side of the pond, if not even exceeded it. In the IPRO post, I decided to revisit that history and look at where things stand today.


So, what are the three notable cases that started acceptance of predictive coding in the UK? And what recent UK eDisclosure trends for machine learning and AI have promoted acceptance of the technologies? You can find out on IPRO’s blog here. It’s just one extra click!  😉

So, what do you think? Do you think the UK has exceeded the US in acceptance of machine learning and AI technology? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
