In the last 15 years or so, a whole new industry has emerged to assist in the prosecution and defense of lawsuits in America. That industry is called “eDiscovery,” or electronic discovery. The industry was created as a reaction to the explosion of the amount of data in the form of electronic records, including email, text messages, computer files, smart phones, and other smart devices such as automotive black boxes. This talk will introduce the concepts of eDiscovery, and explain how it is now possible to quickly review hundreds of thousands, or millions, of documents in a way to extract useful information from all this data.
