My point in this column is that metrics predominate in e-discovery generally and especially for one particular category of software. Analytical discovery software determines the relevance of documents in a collection based on the contents of the documents rather than on the presence in them of key words or phrases. Sometimes referred to as machine-aided review, the software gathers similar documents into clusters, makes binary relevance determinations or ranks the documents they find according to an algorithm for relevance.
