Weekly Letter to Our Global Community – 17 Jan 23
Dear EDRM Community,
The word of the week is authentic.
Observing Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, eDiscovery Today offered Three Diversity Resources for MLK Day: Diversity and Inclusion Trends. With special prosecutors for searching for classified documents on both sides of the aisle, the US is also facing down a serious challenge to the debt limit. ComplexDiscovery offers Cooperation Standards in Government Investigations: Practical Tips.
In legal tech this week, IEEE Spectrum looks at the sources and methodology behind the digital evidence in the Capitol Riot. There’s large money available for an AI court assist in a parking ticket matter. Our trusted partner, Onna, looks forward with 5 Key Trends in eDiscovery 2023 and the great Chuck Kellner from Everlaw weighs in as well on the Illumination Zone Podcast. The Jan. 6 committee exposed social security numbers and Legaltech News explores how the inadvertent disclosure could have been avoided. In another astounding full spectrum AI advance, VALL-E can take three seconds of audio and create a deep fake of the speaker, with implications for identity and access as well as audio evidence. Ralph Losey brings us along his experiments with GPT-3, this time with a rollicking conversation on Hybrid Multi-Model Review with none other than the Big Lebowski’s The Dude.
