Introducing Cecilia Doc Summaries, Powered by Generative AI

DISCO is excited to roll out a new feature in our Cecilia generative AI solutions suite: Cecilia doc summaries.

If you’re familiar with DISCO, you’ve already seen how our AI solutions have radically reduced the time our customers spend on tedious tasks that require no legal expertise. (Think deposition summaries, automatic timeline generation, document review, and fact investigation.)

Now, the Cecilia doc summaries feature joins our award-winning ediscovery platform to speed your time to evidence and fast-track your understanding of your case. 

What is Cecilia doc summaries?

Let’s say you’re doing document review. It’s already slow going, made slower by long documents and foreign language documents that must be read or translated before you can tag them.

Or you’re a busy attorney trying to understand the facts of your case, and these long and/or foreign language documents slow you down – or cause you to miss critical information.

With Cecilia doc summaries, you can instantly get a concise summary of documents with a single click.

What are the benefits of using generative AI for document summaries?

Faster time to evidence

With Cecilia doc summaries, you can quickly grasp the overarching themes of your document set, plus the parties, key provisions, and core subject matter of complex documents.

Quicker doc reviews, more accurate tagging

When, as a first-pass reviewer, you hit any long document (roughly 2 pages or more), you can use Cecilia doc summaries to jump right to the document’s key points to make tagging decisions more efficiently.

Plus, if you’re confirming those tagging decisions, you can efficiently check those tags against the document summary, rather than reviewing the entire doc yourself.

Insight into foreign language docs

Cecilia doc summaries has the ability to generate an English-language summary from common non-English languages. In addition to aiding your comprehension, the key points summary helps you quickly ascertain if the document is relevant enough to warrant full translation, or can just be marked unresponsive.

Have a surprise document sprung on you at a hearing or deposition? Cecilia doc summaries gives you a quick digest, so you can understand the key points without breaking your stride.

Easier prep for your clients

When preparing a binder of hot docs for a partner or client, you can use Cecilia doc summaries to prepare digests for their benefit.

How does it work with Cecilia Q&A?

One thing that sets Cecilia doc summaries apart from other gen AI offerings in the legal tech market is that, as a DISCO user, you can combine the power of this tool with our enterprise Cecilia Q&A offering. 

What’s Cecilia Q&A?

Cecilia Q&A is your in-platform AI fact expert. This chat interface in DISCO Ediscovery can answer any factual question based on your case documents in minutes. Plus, it returns answers with sources cited and linked, helping you trust that the responses are reliable and hallucination-free.
