Electronic discovery (eDiscovery) is the application of technical means to the discovery of evidence in legal cases. The explosive growth of born-digital documents and messaging, as well as legal changes in the US and elsewhere in the early 2000’s, turned eDiscovery into a test case for human-AI teaming. I will discuss the technical and cost challenges in eDiscovery, the AI technologies applied (particularly active learning), the body of case law and informal practice that has developed, and the ethical issues in this highly regulated area.
