Prof. Jan Scholtes, University of Maastricht, Founder ZyLAB discusses role of eDiscovery in Accountability in the Digital Age.
What does eDiscovery mean? What kind of fact finding does it facilitate? How to find relevant data, and how to trust it? How to avoid bias, tunnel vision and echo chamber behaviour by the investigators? How to respect human values and rights? When does one know it has found and investigated the appropriate data sets? How does one know whether it has seen it all? Can the eDiscovery tools and processes be trusted, and do they demonstrate accountability themselves? What can accountable eDiscovery and related good practices help our with accountability issues in the Digital Age? This Dialogue dives into these and related matters.
