FRONTEO Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Masahiro Morimoto, hereinafter FRONTEO) has recently announced.Next Generation AI eDiscovery PlatformWe are pleased to inform you that it has been used in more than 50 international proceedings and fraud investigation cases.


The amount of data managed by companies is increasing year by year.In discovery and digital forensics, which collect data that can amount to several TB per person, it is necessary to find a document that leads to evidence from a huge amount of documents within a limited period of time. However, time, quality of investigation, and cost were major issues for the legal department and lawyers involved in the proceedings.Among them, the process called "review (browsing)" is said to occupy 7% to 8% of the time and cost in the discovery and digital forensics processes, and reviews using technology (computer and AI) (TAR: Technology). The need for Assisted Review) is increasing.


In 2019, FRONTEO developed an AI review tool "KIBIT Automator" (an add-on tool for e-discovery support software "Lit i View", Note 1) to meet this need, and in April 2021, there was Lit i View (Lit i View). By linking the Processing function (used for document pre-processing) and Review function (used for document viewing) of Note 4), it is possible to process fraud investigation and discovery work in a consistent workflow.As a new e-discovery platformreleasedid.


Behind the fact that the number of international litigation support and fraud investigation cases utilizing the next-generation AI e-discovery platform has exceeded 50, KIBIT Automator Processing's high-speed and accurate Asian language data (Japanese, Chinese, and South Korea in Asia) It has the processing power of (word).Even if the collected document contains data written in Asian language, it can be processed without fear of deterioration of analysis accuracy.


Since 2020, FRONTEO has been working to establish a workflow that uses KIBIT Automator Processing as a standalone Processing function within US operations, but the number of uses in US projects has steadily increased, and in May in Japan and the US. The number of cases handled has exceeded 5.


As a pioneer of cross-border discovery (international litigation support) and digital forensics in Japan, FRONTEO will continue to work on expanding the functions of the e-discovery platform, and in addition to responding to the increase in the volume of survey data that is expected to continue in the future We will contribute to improving the accuracy of Asian language processing.


KIBIT Automator Processing

It is possible to narrow down the data by preprocessing a wide variety of business documents.By inheriting the feature of Lit i View that accurately processes Asian languages ​​without garbled characters, and by changing the architect to parallelize, the processing speed is about 3 times faster than Lit i View in preprocessing, and deduplication processing It has improved about 10 times or more.



(Note 1) About KIBIT Automator URL:

"KIBIT Automator" improves the efficiency of document review work in electronic discovery (e-discovery), reduces the burden on workers, and reduces costs, among other discoveries required in the trial proceedings of US civil proceedings. An AI tool developed for the purpose, released in March 2019.We apply the research method used in discovery and utilize AI to examine and analyze large-capacity e-mails and electronic files that are evidence materials.In recent years, it is expected to respond to the short-term information disclosure required of companies.


(Note 2) About Lit i View

Lit i View is a solution that covers the eDiscovery process flow (from data processing to document review), offering flexible workflows, powerful search capabilities, and text analysis capabilities.An eDiscovery software that can accurately identify and process Asian character sets and various file applications.



FRONTEO uses the in-house developed AI engine "KIBIT" and "concept encoder" specializing in natural language processing to extract meaningful and important information from a huge amount of text data to support corporate business. A data analysis company. Since its establishment in August 2003, it has been expanding globally to Japan, the United States, South Korea, and Taiwan, focusing on legal tech businesses such as "e-discovery (electronic discovery)" and "digital forensic investigation" that support international litigation of companies. Has been deployed.Based on the AI ​​technology cultivated in the legal tech business, we expanded the business field to the life science field, business intelligence field, and OSINT from 8, and created by using AI to "turn text data into knowledge". We contribute to solving various corporate issues such as drug support, dementia diagnosis support, financial, human resources, and sales support. Listed on TSE Mothers on June 2014, 2007. January 6, 26 Obtained a first-class medical device manufacturing and sales license (permit number: 2021B1X13).The capital is 13 thousand yen (as of March 1, 10350).
