AI is already dominating 2023 story lines, so this AI in eDiscovery 2023 outlook by Jeffrey Wolff at IPRO is very timely and useful!
Jeff’s post (Artificial Intelligence in eDiscovery: Outlook for 2023 and Beyond, available here) discusses how artificial intelligence (AI) has come a long way in the last seven years since technology-assisted review (TAR) was accepted as black-letter law (by a certain well-known former judge who also was the first to approve its use in 2012!) regarding it’s applicability to eDiscovery.
As for the AI in eDiscovery outlook for 2023, Jeff’s post elaborates in how far AI has come in eDiscovery by discussing new developments in AI generally, such as the use of low- and no-code AI, GPT-3, DALL·E 2, AlphaFold and other scientific AI systems, as well as a more detailed discussion of OpenAI ChatGPT (which is on everyone’s mind these days). He also discusses using GPT-3 (and eventually GPT-4, which “may” be launched in 2023).
Jeff also discusses the future of AI and its impact on the legal profession, including how he and his team have been encouraging eDiscovery professionals to use AI tools in the earlier stages of the eDiscovery pipeline for a while now (which, if you believe my predictions for 2023, is happening more and more). It’s a terrific high-level overview of the AI technologies and how they are affecting eDiscovery more and more, not just in the process of eDiscovery, but also how the evidence processed by it, will evolve.

Jeff was also one of the thought leaders who contributed insightful observations in the 2023 State of the Industry report released yesterday. Thanks, Jeff, for your contributions to that report!
