In recent years, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Mediation have become increasingly intertwined. AI is a collection of technologies and algorithms which are used to enable machines to carry out tasks that would otherwise be impossible or too time-consuming for humans to complete. AI technology is being used to automate processes, improve decision-making, and create more efficient and effective methods of solving problems. Mediation, on the other hand, is a process which involves a third-party mediator helping to resolve disputes between two or more parties. AI is being used to help automate the process of mediation and make it more efficient, as well as to improve the accuracy and speed of decision-making. AI is being used to optimize the process of dispute resolution and provide users with more comprehensive insights into their dispute. By combining AI and Mediation, users are able to benefit from the advantages of both and achieve more effective outcomes.
