DESI VII Focus: Advanced Data Analysis to Identify and Protect Sensitive Information in Large Collections
The seventh workshop on Discovery of Electronically Stored Information (DESI VII) will be held in London at the Strand campus of King’s College London on June 12, 2017 as part of the week-long 16th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law (ICAIL). The ICAIL conference is the primary international conference addressing research in Artificial Intelligence and Law, and has been organized biennially since 1987 under the auspices of the International Association for Artificial Intelligence and Law (IAAIL).
The DESI workshops aim to foster engagement among eDiscovery practitioners and research communities to advance guidelines and standards for machine learning and other advanced eDiscovery techniques as they evolve to address the ever-growing ESI stores that plague litigation, investigation, and information governance efforts. The workshops provide a platform for discussion of best practices and innovations in the use of advanced search technology, text classification, language processing, data organization, visualization and related techniques for the purposes of accessing and managing electronically stored information.
The 2017 DESI VII theme will be on emerging protocols and novel techniques for identifying and protecting sensitive information in large collections, a topic on everyone’s mind as privacy and security concerns continue to escalate. DESI is calling for written contributions on that and other topics that are within the workshop’s broader scope.
