We’re thrilled to share some exciting news today: Text IQ has been named to the prestigious AI 100, a select group of promising private companies working on groundbreaking artificial intelligence technology. The list is officially billed as “a ranking of the 100 most promising private artificial intelligence companies in the world,” and is authored annually by CB Insights, the authority on emerging trends in artificial intelligence.
Last month, Text IQ hosted the first The Inevitable at the offices of Jones Day in New York City. The invite-only executive gathering was attended by Fortune 100 executives and leading Artificial Intelligence researchers to discuss AI’s evolving role in protecting highly-regulated enterprises.
Guests in attendance at The Inevitable included industry influencers such as:
- Dan Cooperman, former General Counsel of Oracle and Apple
- Patricia Hatler, former General Counsel of Nationwide Insurance
- Randy Milch, former General Counsel Verizon
- Marla Persky, former General Counsel of Boehringer Ingelheim and Baxter
- Dr. Kathy McKeown, the Henry and Gertrude Rothschild Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University
- Dr. Owen Rambow, Senior Research Scientist in the Center for Computational Learning Systems, Columbia University
Jocelyn Hunter, Vice President and Deputy General Counsel
Jocelyn Hunter knows a thing or two about more saving and more doing. After twenty years at Home Depot, Hunter now serves as the Vice President and Deputy General Counsel for the company, where she works on employment litigation, international work, legal issues relating to the company’s products – including contractual work as well was regulatory inquiries, and leads the response team for data incidents. We asked her a few questions about her field, and how technology can help improve corporate litigation practices.
Meet Aaron Crews, Head of eDiscovery at Walmart. In his tenure at the behemoth and beyond, he’s seen the evolution of eDiscovery operations as both in-house and outside counsel. Crews understands firsthand the gravity of building strategies for a massive litigation profile that are repeatable, defensible, transparent, and cost-efficient. At Text IQ, we’re building solutions to address the most critical problems of eDiscovery. We sat down with Crews to learn more about the challenges he faces, and what excites him about the future of eDiscovery.
Meet Brett Tarr. As Head of eDiscovery at Caesars Entertainment Inc., he’s helped steer the casino and hospitality giant into the data-intensive world of eDiscovery. As information management around governance, privacy, and eDiscovery has become increasingly unwieldy in the big data landscape, Tarr’s focus has become more proactive, rather than reactive. We caught up with Tarr to get his take on the greatest challenges facing heads of eDiscovery, and how the flood of data will continue to affect the discovery process.
Welcome to Text IQ! We’re thrilled to launch our new website and blog, where we’ll be sharing news about the company, interviews with thought-leaders, ideas around developments in the industry, and (naturally) media mentions.
We’re honored to be featured in Forbes, where Alex Konrad writes about how Text IQ is transforming the discovery process in the legal world through its innovative use of AI. Konrad writes,
“Like other startups, Text IQ’s raised funding to solve that problem. Unlike others, Text IQ is profitable. And for its first outside funding, it’s taking only about $3 million from top investor Floodgate and a group of veteran legal counsels in a seed round its founders say could be the only money it ever needs.”
He goes on to talk about how Text IQ is already driving tremendous savings and impact. “Customers saved $3 million in legal expenses so far this year,” he writes, “not including the much higher costs of bad outcomes averted by its use.”
