ABA Appoints Vice President Mihran Yenikomshian as Big Data Committee Co-Chair
September 4, 2018
The American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Science & Technology Law has appointed Vice President Mihran Yenikomshian as a co-chair of their Big Data Committee for 2018–2019. This committee guides the legal profession into best practices to meet the challenges imposed by “big data” – which is defined as data of sufficient volume, complexity or velocity that it exceeds the capability of conventional current technology or methodology to process or analyze conventionally. While the legal profession is no stranger to big data, this committee is the first formal effort by the ABA to establish global standards and best practices to fully meet the challenges imposed by big data.
