Me, Myself, & AI

Beginning this Friday, is conducting a training on AI:

How does this relate to mediation? Why should mediators care about this technology?

AI is not going to replace mediators any time soon, but mediators with AI will increasingly take cases away from mediators without AI.

Colin Rule
  • AI tools can benefit mediators. There are a host of resources out there to save you time. This means having a robot do your repetitive tasks, so that you can focus on what you love to do.
  • AI tools can benefit clients. AI, like ChatGPT, can become a place for clients to explore different solutions or clarify their interests. This helps them to feel empowered before the mediation even begins.
  • Just like Zoom, clients will soon expect this as an option. Even though it is not necessary to mediate, clients like to see that mediators are knowledgeable and resourceful.

We would love to have you join us at this upcoming training, and all of the future conversations as we shape the path of AI and Mediation.
