TOKYO, Jan. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UBIC, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBIC) (TSE:2158) ("UBIC" or "the Company"), a leading provider of international litigation support and big-data analysis services, today announced that Hideki Takeda, Corporate Officer, CTO and Technology Director of Behavior Informatics Laboratories gave a detailed presentation introducing UBIC's technology and products at the 96th Special Interest Group on Fundamental Problems in Artificial Intelligence (SIG-FPAI) at the Nagoya Institute of Technology, on January 13, 2015.
The scope of the conference encompassed all aspects related to fundamental theories of AI, philosophy, and cognitive science. Participating researchers gathered nationwide from various educational and research institutions. Under the headline "Implementation of enterprise applications for finding evidentiary information in big data," Hideki described why UBIC has adopted AI-based technology in its e-discovery and digital forensic software suites: to solve key problems faced by every human auditor when sorting electronic messages. Hideki then shared his interpretation of the growing demand for AI in the business domain and introduced the VIRTUAL DATA SCIENTIST (VDS), a program that can acquire tacit knowledge possessed by attorneys and experts. He stressed how the ever-increasing precision of the VDS enjoyed by corporate clients over the years has facilitated the overall auditing process. He also referred to key case studies describing how UBIC gained its know-how and to technological developments of UBIC's Lit i View® technology as well as to the benefits these products can bring to users. Mr. Hideki concluded by presenting a demonstration of how Lit i View® actually works. Although the businesses of e-discovery and digital forensics remain relatively unknown in Japan, the participating researchers showed keen interest in the technologies presented and asked questions about several issues.
