Once again legal product vendors will swarm the New York Hilton for LegalTech New York ’13 to show their wares and demonstrate their latest products. This year’s show will provide the next generation of SaaS and mobile applications from a variety of vendors.

RenewData, a full-service eDiscovery provider that offers the industry’s broadest spectrum of review acceleration solutions, will be sharing two new offerings at LegalTech New York: Language-Based Review Acceleration and Language-Based Content Filtering.
Language-Based Review Acceleration is the next generation of technology-assisted review. A key feature of this offering is Cross-Document Knowledge Extraction. The output of other review solutions is simply a subset of documents from the collection that might be relevant, but which requires additional analysis in order to learn more about each document’s content. Cross-Document Knowledge Extraction adds deeper insight into these results, yielding a better categorization of results that can lead to strategic advantages and additional cost savings.
Language-Based Content Filtering revolutionizes the way keywords are selected and applied in discovery by turning the process around. Instead of the traditional approach of making guesses in a vacuum on what keywords might be applicable to a matter, this approach ingests all words in a document collection and then provides a methodical framework for choosing the keywords from a pre-populated list. In short, it turns a fill-in-the-blank exercise into a multiple-choice exercise — thereby delivering more comprehensive results with less cost and risk.
Both new solutions are part of the Language-Based Analytics family of offerings, which is a language-based approach to methodically narrow down any size of document collection to identify potentially relevant information in the early phases of eDiscovery. With a series of interrelated processes and technologies, organizations are able to quickly and cost-effectively analyze a document collection, understand what each document is about, and make important decisions based on this understanding.
