Heretik unveils new solution for building custom machine learning models: Heretik Forge

CHICAGO – May 20th, 2019 – Heretik is releasing the newest addition to its growing toolkit of contract review solutions: Heretik Forge.

Forge is the first solution in a Relativity instance for running data science experiments to build custom machine learning models.

Heretik customers will be able to use the existing foundation of Heretik Analysis (Classification, Segmentation, and Extraction) and tailor their own client, industry, and/or use case-specific analysis models unique to their business.

Forge abstracts much of the heavy lifting needed for ETL (extract, transform, load), data processing, or training data gathering. When enabled on a document review project, Forge will automatically gather all metadata and information it needs from user actions in the review workspace and sync this data to a Forge-configured training workspace, all within the same Relativity instance and in adherence to customers’ existing security policies and infrastructure.

“We built Forge to unlock the limitless potential of innovative customers. With every new contract review project, customers are building a wealth of training data they can utilize to build automation into workflows on future projects,” says Rishi Khullar, Director of Product Management at Heretik. “Leveraging Forge, customers might also tackle foreign language projects or go beyond contracts to analyzing alternative document types.”

Heretik has selected a handful of its clients to join its Forge Beta Program, running through the summer of 2019. PwC was one of the first to join. Umang Paw, PwC UK’s Head of the Digital and Forensic Investigations practice says, “At PwC, we’re focused on solving our clients’ problems by bringing together innovative technology with our talented people and business understanding. Heretik Forge’s fantastic new platform allows us to continue to invest in our people in an efficient and flexible fashion; enabling the team to expand their expertise within our industry leading digital services, and to supplement our already strong Relativity practice.”

Heretik Forge will be publicly available in fall of 2019. For more information, visit or email
