The 13th Annual EDI Leadership Summit, scheduled for October 11-13, 2023, in Indian Wells, California, is a cornerstone event for eDiscovery thought leadership. This year, the summit will feature a distinguished faculty and offer sessions that have become synonymous with influential scholarship and advocacy. Among the key supporters of this year’s event is HaystackID, a specialized eDiscovery services firm serving as a Diamond Ambassador.

HaystackID’s role in the summit is comprehensive, reflecting its sponsorship, leadership, and educational contributions, including valuable insights into the future of eDiscovery, particularly in the area of Document Review with Vazantha Meyers, Vice President of Discovery Services at HaystackID, scheduled to join an esteemed panel on October 12 from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. PDT. The panel discussion is aptly titled “Where We’re Going, We Don’t Need Roads: The Future of Document Review.”

This forward-looking panel aims to shed light on the evolving landscape of Document Review, a topic that has seen increased volumes and resulting costs and risks for corporate legal departments and law firms. The discussion will cover a range of relevant issues, including best practices for staffing and managing remote reviewers, establishing and maintaining information security during review projects, and protocols for cost reduction and quality control enhancement. The overarching goal is to provide practical strategies that treat document review as a critical part of the eDiscovery process rather than as just an added function to be performed by merits counsel or a hosting provider.

In addition to its thought leadership in Document Review, HaystackID is also making waves in the area of artificial intelligence and generative AI. With the growing interest in these technologies, it is fitting that HaystackID has chosen the EDI Leadership Summit as the platform to unveil a new AI-generated advertisement. Created using Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI) with Midjourney, the ad is more than just a marketing tool; it provides an important message that highlights HaystackID’s thoughtful and reasoned approach to the application and use of AI/GAI in eDiscovery and corporate efforts.
