NCSC Develops Report to Quantify Automated Redaction Accuracy

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) recently released the Automated Redaction Proof of Concept Report, made possible by an SJI grant.  The goal of this 16-page, Proof of Concept (POC) Report, is to quantify the accuracy of automated redaction capabilities and share those results with the court community.

The report focuses on the following areas:

  • Developing a comprehensive redaction policy;
  • Identifying redaction targets;
  • Evaluation and Metrics; and,
  • POC Trials in multiple court settings.

The report is intended to provide: 1) background about the principles underlying the Revised Model Policy; and (2) a description of the categories of protected information included within the scope of the POC, the methodology that the NCSC and participating vendors followed during the POC, and, most importantly, the impressive results achieved in automated redaction of the data targets.
