Jeremy Pickens, Chief Data Scientist, Conga

Jeremy Pickens, PhD is an information retrieval research scientist and a pioneer in the field of collaborative exploratory search, a form of information seeking in which a group of people who share a common, active information need are mediated and enhanced by machine learning. While at Catalyst Repository Systems and later OpenText, Dr. Pickens spearheaded the development of Insight Predict, the first commercially available TAR 2.0 tool, which also included the first continuous diversification algorithm in the eDiscovery space. Recently, he led the development of a radically reimagined way of creating and utilizing privilege logs that drastically reduces the human effort needed. Now as Chief Scientist at Conga, he applies similar process-oriented intelligent algorithms to the contract AI space. Dr. Pickens earned his doctoral degree at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He conducted his post-doctoral work at King’s College, London and has conducted basic and applied research at FX Palo Alto Lab, Inc.
