The goal of the project, now elevated to an initiative, is to create a new, generic dataset that includes as many of the modern data types (Slack, Snapchat, Facebook, website data, etc.) as possible in addition to traditional email for use within eDiscovery and Information Governance. The new data sets will be made available to the general public for use in research, testing, demonstrations, software development and other related use cases.
We welcome and look forward to the community’s help in data type identification and gathering sources of data we can use in this project. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with Data Sets in the subject line to get connected. The project champions are Mark Michels, lecturer in law, Santa Clara University School of Law and Cash Butler, CEO and founder of ClariLegal.
