Those of us in the e-discovery industry recall that 2012 was declared the “year of predictive of coding.” Despite a similar prediction for 2013, many of us assumed predictive coding would continue to be the focus for corporate clients and become further engrained in legal culture. However, even though adoption rates seemed to level off and widespread usage remains relatively low, several software companies are continuing to develop the next iteration of predictive coding technology for the discovery process. As it stands, even though we are many years away from artificial intelligence replacing virtually all of the human labor involved in the review process, it is likely that 2014 will mark another defining moment in the evolution of predictive coding.
