Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Report 2024 (1)

The State of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML) in E-Discovery and Document Review

An ACEDS, BRG, and Relativity Survey Report

For a second year, BRG, Relativity, and the Association of Certified E-Discovery Specialists (ACEDS) facilitated a research initiative to gather and analyze data on experiences using artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in eDiscovery and document review.

Participants responded to thirty-one questions, including a new section of six questions about participants’ experiences with generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) both in business and personally. No previous technology has appeared this quickly and created this much rapid change. Prior to GenAI, we referred to the technology as “AI and machine learning,” and now we refer to it as AI alone. 

The other twenty-five questions covered general AI experience, AI use in document review, and respondent demographics. The report breaks down these results and highlights additional trends from year-over-year comparisons with last year’s findings.
