Topics to be covered include:

  • The practitioner's view of TAR: When is it effective? When not? What matters are best suited to TAR?
  • Real-world TAR: How to handle challenges like rolling uploads and endless random documents, and when to call in an expert for training.
  • A survey of panel members: How do you know if TAR is really working? What kind of proof is required for defensibility?
  • How much money and time can TAR save, and how?
