Why I Love Predictive Coding

By Ralph Losey

Making document review fun with Mr. EDR and Predictive Coding 3.0

Many lawyers and technologists like predictive coding and recommend it to their colleagues. They have good reasons to do so. It has worked for them.

Golden treasure I contain, guarded by hundreds and thousands. Stored in a labyrinth where no man walks, yet men come often to seize my gold.
