FRONTEO Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Masahiro Morimoto, hereafter FRONTEO) uses AI-based document review tool "KIBIT Automator" to investigate quality fraud in Japanese companies, and uses our data. We are pleased to inform you that with the appropriate support of scientists, we have improved the accuracy of document reviews, which are extremely complex and have multiple research perspectives, and have realized work efficiency and cost reduction.


This time, FRONTEO has supported a survey on quality fraud in Japan by a major Japanese company.In recent years, quality fraud cases of companies have been discovered one after another, and it has become a problem that has a great impact on society. FRONTEO provides support for investigating fraudulent cases using AI for a large number of companies, and this case is one of them.


The amount of data managed by companies is steadily increasing year by year, and in digital forensics (information security and analysis surveys targeting information recorded on digital devices), several TB per evidence holder (Castdian). You have to collect data that can range up to, and find a document that leads to evidence in a huge amount of documents within a limited period of time.Time, quality and cost are major issues for lawyers involved in research.Among them, "document review", which is the process of finding related information, is said to occupy about 1% of the time and cost, and it is necessary to find the necessary information from a huge amount of data within a limited time. , Utilization of tools such as AI is indispensable.


KIBIT Automator, which FRONTEO developed in 2019 to meet these needs, contains multiple algorithms that make up the AI ​​engine "KIBIT".The selection of these algorithms requires knowledge of natural language processing and statistical analysis, but at FRONTEO, a data scientist dedicated to the legal tech field has established a system to support the selection of algorithms by lawyers in charge of research.In this survey, the survey viewpoints were multiple and extremely complicated, so the data scientist selected the type of algorithm according to changes in the situation and the characteristics of the text data, and used AI to recreate the teacher data with multiple algorithms each time. We have provided support for.With these appropriate actions, we have achieved a 66% cutoff * for review, improving the efficiency of document reviews and reducing costs by reducing work time.


* Cutoff: Judging documents that rarely need to be reviewed by humans and excluding them from review.


KIBIT Automator is highly evaluated for its ability to discover "data you want to find" in a short time from a huge amount of data, and it is used for international litigation cases, arbitration cases, US authorities investigation cases, and investigations in Japan in various business areas. Widely used in projects.In this quality fraud investigation project as well, not only the use of AI, which is a feature of FRONTEO, but also the effectiveness of the support system by data scientists was proved.


FRONTEO will continue to promote the sophistication of AI solutions and the "best mix of people and digital" by specialists, and will contribute to reducing the burden and efficiency of corporate proceedings and investigations, and solving problems at an early stage.
