Relativity Trace to Introduce AI Data Cleansing Capabilities


Email thread deduplication capability dramatically decreases false positives and improves reviewer accuracy and speed

Relativity, a global legal and compliance technology company, will showcase new data cleansing capabilities integrated in its AI-powered communication surveillance product Relativity Trace at Relativity’s free, virtual conference Relativity Fest. The new capabilities modeled to reduce false positives by up to 92%, will be discussed in further depth at the Finding Real Risk and Ignoring the Rest: Artificial Intelligence in Surveillance session October 5 at 10:15 a.m. CT.

“Surveillance teams are overwhelmed by the number of false positives that their legacy surveillance system generates,” said Jordan Domash, General Manager of Relativity Trace. “This leads to hours of time stripped away from pinpointing risk and misconduct that actually matter because time is allocated to reviewing content that should never have been alerted on in the first place. Our team saw an opportunity to provide a solution to this widespread industry problem with email thread deduplication.”

Email thread deduplication—one aspect of Relativity Trace’s AI-powered data cleansing capabilities— locates old email content within new emails, checks that it was already analyzed and prevents it from generating another alert. Relativity has invested in email threading capabilities for over 10 years in its e-discovery platform and is expanding this unique feature to communication surveillance customers within Relativity Trace. Relativity Trace improves reviewer accuracy and speed, while providing transparency and defensibility, by displaying all data cleansing for a communication directly in the review interface.

Additionally, Relativity Trace’s data cleansing capabilities identifies email headers, signatures and confidentiality disclaimers. It prevents alerts from being generated on this duplicative or non-authored content, so reviewers are only notified of the relevant portion that was written by the sender. Reviewers can also see the content that was cleared increasing their review speed and accuracy.

“Relativity Trace offers the most comprehensive capabilities to detect already analyzed email segments within an email thread,” said Domash. “What sets Relativity Trace’s email thread deduplication apart from other tools is that it truly understands email segments and allows teams to visualize what’s already been reviewed. This is going to be a game changing enhancement for our customers and significantly strengthen their ability to detect real risk, quickly.”
