Written by Herbert L. Roitblat, Ph.D., - A short overview of conceptual search in relation to electronic discovery.

Introduction: Conceptual Search in Electronic Discovery

According to the Radicati Group, the average business mailbox contains 4.3 GB of potentially discoverable ESI. The burden of dealing with that volume is obvious. Automated tools to help identify responsive and privileged documents are being used more and more as the only viable way to manage these massive volumes of information. Electronic Discovery professionals have been looking for ways to limit the number of documents that need to be reviewed, because review is usually the most expensive part of eDiscovery. Most commonly, these methods revolve around some kind of content search to distinguish those documents that are potentially responsive from those that are not. Content search also has the potential to make document review itself more efficient and effective, further reducing the burden.
