AI and the Future of Mediation (video)

AI and the Future of Mediation – July 2023Ontario Association for Family Mediation (OAFM) :

I’ve been fascinated (and a bit terrified) by the release of OpenAI’s ChatGPT and the release of similar models now with Google’s Bard and Microsoft’s Bing AI and I have been experimenting with them for some time. In my talk, I’ll discuss how a LLM (Large Linguistic Model), particularly GPT-4 will affect the work of mediators, what mediators should be aware of, what are the potential benefits of using AI during the mediation process and its pitfalls.
