Catalyst Unveils Advanced Predictive Coding Tool Insight Predict

Proprietary Predictive Ranking(SM) Algorithms Work With Rolling Collection to Accommodate Real-World Workflows in Document Review

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Today at Legal Tech New York, Catalyst Repository Systems, Inc., a pioneer and long-time industry leader in cloud-based document repositories for e-discovery and other complex legal matters, announced the release of its integrated predictive coding tool for e-discovery, Insight Predict. With Insight Predict, review teams are able to identify the most relevant documents much earlier in the review process, making the entire review workflow more focused and efficient. Catalyst is showcasing Catalyst Insight Predict at Legal Tech, Booth #2401-2403.

"Insight Predict revolutionizes the way corporate legal departments and law firms approach the entire review process," said John Tredennick, CEO of Catalyst. "With Insight Predict, legal teams are able to run smarter searches and identify relevant documents faster, document tagging is more accurate and consistent, and attorneys can identify key legal issues and assess exposure much earlier in the process. All of this translates into more efficient, less expensive review."

Catalyst Insight Predict seamlessly integrates into Catalyst Insight, the first cloud-based e-discovery platform to harness the power of a Big Data XML engine.

Catalyst's Insight Predict is based on more than four years of experience using and testing predictive coding techniques. It uses artificial intelligence to streamline and enhance human review. Insight Predict distinguishes itself from most predictive coding applications available today in several ways:

  • The technology employs contextual diversity sampling and other statistical techniques to rank each document based on a sample, or "seed set," from a larger population of documents. Review experts review the sample and rank documents for relevance, thereby "training" the program to calculate the relevance of documents on its own.
  • In an iterative, self-correcting process called Predictive Ranking(SM) -- Catalyst's proprietary process for technology assisted review -- Insight Predict feeds additional samples to the expert to test or validate their relevance and to progressively improve the accuracy and precision of its rankings.
  • It is not necessary to have a complete collection of documents to create a statistically valid result. Insight Predict was designed specifically to work dynamically with rolling data input, which aligns closely with the review process in the real world, where rolling collection is the norm.

"The great thing about Insight Predict is that you can add new documents of any type at any time," said Tredennick. "You don't have to wait weeks or months until all the documents in a big case are collected. And you don't have to repeat step one of the standard workflow when those additional documents arrive."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
