Rishi Chhatwal

AT&T
Assistant Vice President - Senior Legal Counsel
...

The practice of law is a rich tapestry woven from argument, stories, and the presentation of evidence. eDiscovery, however, is often considered to be part of the “nuts and bolts” of a matter – a means to an end, where practitioners can get lost in a loop of preserve-collect-process-repeat. But what if there was a way to use one to support the other? This talk is designed to flush out the best ways to make strategic data decisions at the outset of a matter to allow you to better utilize that data during the investigation, planning, and argument stages of your case. While poor eDiscovery planning can lead to expensive and distracting disputes, refined Strategy and Advocacy when dealing with large volumes of data can lead to not only efficiency and expediency, but more important - victory.

A document is “anything on which information of any kind is recorded”. That used to mean paper, then electronic documents - emails, Word files and the like - which were recognisable as documents. Now we have messages exchanged via WhatsApp, Snap, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and others. We create data which does not have any obvious text - photographs, videos, audio files - and send that to each other. Our devices may track our every move and some apps, and websites store that data. Beyond that we have data being created about us by others or by semi-autonomous machines; some of that sits in our homes and offices; some is captured by CCTV or telephone recordings.

Artificial intelligence is poised to have a transformational impact on our world; it is already affecting how we do business and live our lives today. Its effects magnify as virtually every industry begins to transform their core processes and business models to take advantage of artificial intelligence. Because of this level of influence and impact artificial intelligence will have in our world, it is essential that we keep it pure, balanced and unbiased in the tasks and processes it performs; however, are we? Of late, we see a trend of bias making its way into artificial intelligence systems that pose a threat to artificial intelligence becoming a positive impact on our world.  The bias found in the data and even the models themselves can cause subtle unexpected outcomes.  Join me as we discuss what this bias is, how it might be (accidentally or perhaps deliberately) included into data and models, and how we can detect and remove bias from our artificial intelligence systems.

The blockchain is an undeniably ingenious invention – the brainchild of a person or group of people known by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. But since then, it has evolved into something greater.

 

Blockchain technologies provide the opportunity to transform major industries, particularly through the intersection of blockchain, big data, and IOT. Blockchain will soon transform diverse sectors including: finance, energy, health/pharma, agriculture, food/chemicals, transportation, autonomous systems, sharing economies, artificial intelligence, robotics etc. Several states have started using-or exploring how they can use-blockchain to manage critical records, ensure data integrity, and provide more transparent access to and management of company information. And the Federal Government recently launched an initiative (https://www.gsa.gov/technology/government-it-initiatives/emerging-citize...), focused on exploring distributed ledger technologies (like blockchain) that use encryption and coding to improve transparency, efficiency, and trust in information sharing for a variety of potential use cases. Join this panel to learn more about blockchain and how it's about to change the world.

Day TWO OPEN
8:45AM - 9:45AM
Track 1

Best practices sound great, but what’s the best way to implement them so these ideal models become your standard procedure – case in and case out? Even as the eDiscovery industry matures, we are constantly faced with new challenges from technologies that didn’t exist even a few years ago. These technologies result in new forms of communication, which means new types of ESI – including texts, chat messages and emojis – and an ever increasing data volume. The panelists will explore how cooperation and transparency between clients, firms, providers and yes, even opposing counsel, allows you to develop standards. We will also explore analytics and whether their day has actually arrived – or if these will continue to be a much-heralded best practice but little-used standard. Finally, we’ll discuss building your eDiscovery dream team – filled with rock stars offering a diverse skill set from all sides – client, law firm and eDiscovery provider.
