What is conflict analytics?

Conflict analytics is the process of extracting actionable knowledge from data to assist in-house counsels, negotiators, and human resources professionals as well as mediators and arbitrators. Advanced analytics and AI tools can help to reveal trends and patterns in past disputes that inform legal and negotiation strategies and predict outcomes in current disputes. Conflict analytics does not provide black-box solutions. Data-driven insights are not meant to replace human wisdom; rather, they act as a complement to it.
