For a little eDiscovery Day fun and to celebrate their hard work, we put together an eDiscovery quiz that was sent to our partners and prospects. We also offered a prize for the first person to correctly answer all of the questions.

Quiz Information

Most of the quiz information came from the Venio team and the Electronic Discovery page on Wikipedia, but we also have to give a nod to the eDiscovery Day website. It is interesting to read about the development of eDiscovery over time, how procedural rules have changed to support electronic discovery, and how technical advancements like Technology Assisted Review (TAR) have been challenged in the courts. For instance, did you know that the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure regarding electronic discovery only took effect 12 years ago and TAR was first recognized by a US Court in 2012? We have sure come a long way in that time!

With newer predictive coding methods like Continuous Active Learning (CAL), which is also known as TAR 2.0, becoming more prevalent in eDiscovery platforms, it will be interesting to see how those methods are adopted and how their wider use affects the industry. At Venio, we are excited about our recently released CAL module and looking forward to seeing how our clients leverage it to improve their workflows and results in their cases. It’s an exciting time to be working in eDiscovery!
