IRMS Midlands Webinar: 22 June 2020 - Records management as a data science

Posted By Emily Gresham, 06 July 2020
In our second Midlands Group webinar we were joined by James Lappin to discuss records management as a data science. James outlined a potential paradigm shift for records managers, moving away from a policy function to a data science. Proposing that our approach to records management problems may need to be re-examined. As records management decisions tend to carry high levels of risk, James suggested we should: start small, have a safe fail and start simple. Using the example of managing email to set out how this might work James proposed a 5 step approach for starting to use AI and machine learning to manage information. Step 1 - assign retention rules to email accounts based on the role of the individual Step 2 - Distinguish business from non-business email within individual accounts Step 3 - Group emails by business activity within individual email accounts Step 4 - Apply retention and access rules to business activity groupings Step 5 - Create links between the business activity groupings of different individuals The webinar was well attended and there was lively debate between attendees, discussing how organisations are approaching some of the challenges raised.
