Tackling Big Data Challenges

March 24, 2020



In the very first episode of season three, co-hosts Bill Mariano and Rob Hellewell, introduce themselves and welcome listeners back for another riveting season of Law & Candor, the podcast wholly devoted to pursuing the legal technology revolution.

To kick things off, Bill and Rob begin with Sightings of Radical Brilliance, the part of the show where they discuss the latest news of noteworthy innovation and acts of sheer genius. In this first episode, they dive into a recent story around the Astros cheating scandal and their illegal use of technology to observe and relay the signs given by the opposing catcher to the pitcher known as sign-stealing.

Before our co-hosts jump directly into the guest speaker segment of today’s episode, they set the stage for the first three episodes of season 3, which are recordings from the first-ever live Law & Candor show during Legaltech this past January. All three live segments are trickled out over the next three episodes. 

The guest speaker segment for episode one highlights, Josh Kreamer of AstraZeneca. Josh, Bill, and Rob discuss ever-evolving technology and data sources, and how it is now more challenging than ever to combat the cost and complexities associated with legal data. They tackle these key questions and Josh provides answers to the following: 

  • What are some of the biggest data challenges in the industry today?
  • What are some key solutions to these challenges?
  • How do you implement these solutions?
  • How do you get buy in from your team/get them excited to move forward with implementation?
