TOKYO - UBIC Inc., a leading provider of international litigation support and big-data analysis services, announced today in a press release that the Japan Patent Office has granted the Company the following patent in relation to its "Predictive Coding" technology. Additionally, the patent registration procedure has been completed.
Application number: 2013-222334 
Patent application date: October 25, 2013

Predictive Coding is an AI-based technology used to provide next-generation digital solutions that make it possible to extract valuable business information from large volumes of data. The technology is integrated into UBIC's "Virtual Data Scientist" software program, which incorporates the knowledge and expertise of human professionals through automated learning. Predictive Coding is already used in various products based on UBIC's "Lit i View" platform for big data analysis.

Virtual Data Scientist and Lit i View facilitate eDiscovery work in U.S. litigation cases by automatically identifying potential evidence materials from mass corporate data with a high level of speed and precision. Moreover, they have blazed trails in new business frontiers such as corporate fraud investigation and email auditing using AI-based data analysis.

The new patent covers a technology closely related to that covered by the Japanese patent that the Company announced on July 28, 2014 (Patent #5567049). This technology, which detects time-sequential changes in the relevance scores of document review, can be applied to the prediction of future changes in scores.

"We believe that the new patent is a testament to the superior innovation that underlies the high-precision document analysis provided by UBIC," UBIC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Masahiro Morimoto said. "UBIC aims to provide data analysis solutions in a broad range of new fields, including health care, intellectual property evaluation support and national security. By further honing our AI-based technologies and expanding our portfolio of intellectual properties, UBIC will contribute to the creation of a better society."

UBIC Inc. is a leading provider of e-discovery and digital forensic services for Asia and the world. UBIC has extensive experience working with electronically stored information composed in Chinese, Japanese and Korean (CJK) languages and utilizes that expertise for clients involved in cross-border litigation, corporate investigations, intellectual property disputes and much more. At the forefront of e-discovery innovation, UBIC's proprietary Lit i View® platform is moving the industry from "fact discovery" to "future discovery" by allowing clients to analyze e-mail messages and digital communications found in big data to reveal patterns in human thought and behavior.
