Does AI predict the outcome of Churchill mediation judgment in CA?
Churchill v Merthyr Tydfil - a very interesting Civil Mediation Conference last week followed by the Civil Justice Council National Forum. Speakers included the entire panel hearing the Churchill case - inevitably tight lipped about the case but if the panel includes the Lady Chief Justice, Master of the Rolls and Deputy Head of Civil Justice it is clearly a case of note and unlikely that judgment will be long delayed but precisely when? And the Outcome?
A National Forum session led by Prof Susskind on AI explained that Chat GPT appeared to offer better results than Google on which users were, with caveats, happy to use. Substantial concerns were raised about the accuracy of Chat GPT as it is not trained on specific databases but I nevertheless thought I would ask:
"As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, I don't have specific details about the case "Churchill v Merthyr Tydfil" or any predictions about its likely outcome. Legal cases can be complex and dynamic, and predicting outcomes can be challenging. To get the most accurate and up-to-date information on the case and its potential outcomes, I recommend checking the latest news sources, legal databases, or consulting with legal professionals involved in the case. Legal proceedings and outcomes can change, so it's essential to rely on the latest and most authoritative sources for information on specific cases."
So - it does not know. My thoughts would be that Judgment will be soon(ish) and before Christmas and that it will determine that a Court may order mediation (or other forms of Dispute Resolution) without straying too far in to definitions of the different forms of DR.
