  • Navigating Ediscovery Vendor Evaluations
    Navigating Ediscovery Vendor Evaluations
    Christina Ling, Brett Burney, Robert Sawyer Recorded: Feb 12 2020 60 mins
    Selecting an ediscovery platform is a time-intensive, headache ridden process that extends beyond comparing feature by feature. With countless options on the market, buyers often find themselves lost in their journey to find the best solution for their firm or enterprise. Everlaw has teamed up with IT and legal professionals to educate buyers on how to simplify the process of selecting an ediscovery vendor amongst the sea of options.

    In this webinar, attendees will:

    Understand what elements are critical to vendor evaluation
    Hear how ediscovery experts advise law firms and legal departments in their assessment of ediscovery vendors
    Explore what the future may hold for buyers of ediscovery software
  • Patenting Artificial Intelligence
    Patenting Artificial Intelligence
    Peter Scott (WIPR), Dr Susan Keston (HGF), Jeff Clarke (HGF) Recorded: Feb 11 2020 58 mins
    As patent attorneys we are trained to tease out the thoughts of a human inventor in tackling a problem. However, inventions involving artificial intelligence (AI) can present us with the challenge of an inventor explaining that with sufficient input data, the “black box” number-crunching outputs a neat solution to the problem posed.

    We are not yet at a point at which AI-powered machines and software have become untethered from the supervision of human beings. However, if you use Apple’s Siri, you are benefiting from AI-based natural language processing. Google’s DeepMind is applying AI to process raw data from the environment to emulate human learning, and AI-driven software can predict epileptic seizures with incredible accuracy.

    This webinar explores invention-spotting strategies for AI innovations. The aftermath of the US Supreme Court’s Alice decision can lead to some AI innovations being categorised as patent-ineligible “abstract ideas”. However, the European Patent Office (EPO) has a stable and long-established body of case law in the assessment of computer-implemented inventions via the problem-solution approach.

    We believe that the European approach can be helpful in navigating patent eligibility arguments in the US. We shall review useful practical examples from EPO case law of attempts to protect AI inventions.

    TAR TALK: Two Lawyers and a Data Scientist Walk into a Bar . . .
    John Tredennick, Herb Roitblat, Tom Gricks & Mary Mack Recorded: Jan 30 2020 28 mins
    Two Lawyers and a Data Scientist Walk into a Bar . . .
    That's the start of the joke our guest Herb Roitblat wants to tell in the next edition of TAR Talk. Herb thinks lawyers are working too hard at e-discovery and making it too complex. TAR can help with this problem, but not unless we better understand the limits of certain basic sampling concepts such as confidence levels and margins of error.
    In this episode we talk about why the statistical choices we make do not necessarily bring better results. If we are lucky, we might also coax Herb into telling us how game theory could be used to improve the discovery process. And, in case you didn’t realize it, Tom and I will be the lawyers for this joke, Herb is the data scientist. You can be the bartenders at our next edition of TAR Talk. Don’t miss it.

  • Manage DSAR Challenges through Workflow Optimisation and Automation
    Manage DSAR Challenges through Workflow Optimisation and Automation
    Christina Ling, Gregory Campbell Recorded: Jan 29 2020 48 mins
    When the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on 25 May 2018, it eliminated the cost barrier for an individual to submit a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR), potentially increasing the burden on organisations required to provide the results, and all in a tighter timeline. This has created a challenge for many organisations looking to conform with their duties and obligations; how do they respond to a DSAR in an efficient and cost effective manner? With Everlaw, organisations are able to quickly discover unstructured data, reveal the relevant underlying information, and collaboratively act on these requests in a timely manner.

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    The challenges experienced by organisations in respect of DSARs under the GDPR and how the Everlaw platform can help to overcome these
    Opportunities for workflow optimisation and automation during DSAR review, including the identification of personal data and leveraging batch redactions
    The use of Everlaw’s narrative building toolkit to provide the additional information that organisations are required to supply under the GDPR.

    Tony Decicco & Leon Schwartz, GTC Law, Phil Odence, Synopsys Recorded: Nov 14 2019 61 mins
    Companies’ use of open source software has surpassed the occasional and solidified itself as mainstream. Effectively identifying and managing the compliance and security risks associated with open source software can be a difficult task. Whether you’re acquiring another company, preparing for acquisition or simply wanting to manage the use of open source, the universal first step is to figure out the composition of the code, often via an audit. But what do you do once you have the audit report?

    Join us for this live webinar to learn best practices before and after an open source audit. We’ll cover how to:

    •Select and prepare the code base
    •Get the most out of an audit
    •Implement a third-party software policy

  • Do Design Quality and Code Quality Matter in M&A Tech Due Diligence?
    Do Design Quality and Code Quality Matter in M&A Tech Due Diligence?
    Phil Odence, GM, Synopsys & Daniel Sturtevant, CEO and Co-founder, Silverthread Recorded: Oct 24 2019 47 mins
    (Spoiler alert: Yes.)

    In an acquisition where a software asset is a core part of the deal valuation, it’s important to understand the overall quality of the software before doing the deal. Buggy software is problematic and needs to be cleaned up, so assessing code quality is important. But also, with poorly designed software, every fix is costly, laborious, and risky. The cost of fixes can significantly affect the long-term technical and economic viability of the application, and maintaining the software can seriously degrade ROI. That’s why understanding a software system’s design and architectural health and the likely “cost of ownership” is key.

    Join us for this live webinar to learn how to paint a complete picture of the technical quality of software to avoid buyer’s remorse post-close. We’ll cover:

    •The dimensions of technical due diligence
    •The difference between design quality and code quality
    •How software architecture can have a long-term impact
    •What to look for in software design and code quality audits

  • The CRISPR IP Saga - the latest chapter and looking to the next
    The CRISPR IP Saga - the latest chapter and looking to the next
    Dr Claire Irvine (Partner, HGF), Douglas Drysdale (Partner, HGF) Recorded: Oct 10 2019 67 mins
    CRISPR gene-editing continues to hit the headlines regularly as a ground-breaking technology with many millions now flowing into companies seeking to exploit the technology in both the therapeutic and agricultural fields. Unfortunately, the IP landscape continues to lack clarity with possibility of divergence between Europe and the US.

    This webinar will provide an update on the CRISPR IP saga and seek to shine light on the interplay between the latest chapter in the US, starting with new interference proceedings instigated by the USPTO, and opposition and appeal proceedings affecting key European patents at the European Patent Office. With oral proceeding now scheduled for early February 2020 for the opposition to the basic European patent of the University of California et al. and availability of a non-binding preliminary opinion on the arguments from the opposition board, it is an apt time for review of the main focus of the battle - coverage of CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing in eukaryotic cells. The webinar will also discuss the considerations for those needing to think about freedom-to–operate in the absence of resolution of a standard for CRISPR gene-editing for therapy and the growing number of
    claims outside the main battle lines.

    This webinar is aimed at those wishing to hear about the latest developments in the CRISPR IP landscape whether in the commercial, academic, legal or patent world. With the CRISPR IP saga not evidently close to the final chapter, it will also provide an opportunity to raise questions which may arise from the on–going lack of clarity.
