The company has announced that the Japan Patent Office has issued the company a patent concerning new functionality for Predictive Coding. UBIC's unique, AI-based Predictive Coding technology is used to provide next-generation digital solutions that make it possible to extract valuable business information from large volumes of data.  (Application number: Patent application 2013-159645Patent application date: July 31, 2013.) The new patent covers a technology closely related to the technology covered by the Japanese patent that the company announced obtaining on July 28, 2014 (Patent #5567049). The technology enables a function indicating the proportion of a data volume that should be reviewed (an endpoint), which in turn reduces the burden on reviewers while ensuring the reliability of the review. 

This technology is integrated into the VIRTUAL DATA SCIENTIST software program that incorporates the knowledge and expertise of human professionals through automated learning. It is already used in various products in UBIC's "Lit i View" platform for the analysis of big data held by corporations. Those products facilitate e-discovery work in U.S. litigation cases by automatically identifying potential evidence materials from large volumes of corporate data with a high level of speed and precision.
