Extension of Commentary Period for the SVAMC’s Guidelines on the US of AI in Arbitration

As reported in August 2023, the Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center released the draft Guidelines on the Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Arbitration (Guidelines) for public consultation. The Guidelines offer a set of best practices on the use of AI in international arbitration for all those involved in the arbitration process. It seeks to address both current and future applications of artificial intelligence from a principled framework, while also bearing in mind that the technology will continue to evolve rapidly.

Considering the interest that the Guidelines have aroused and the fruitful engagement of the arbitration community, the Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center has decided to extend the deadline for members of the public to provide feedback on the Guidelines, which was originally set on 30 September 2023, until 15 December 2023

In parallel, the Silicon Valley Arbitration and Mediation Center is actively soliciting commentary from arbitral institutions and organizations.  Recognizing that such entities may require more time to provide their comments, the deadline for institutional commentary is extended until 15 February 2024.

Please provide your feedback on the SVAMC AI Guidelines Consultation Portal, which can be accessed through this link: https://arbi-city.typeform.com/ai-guidelinesThe draft Guidelines are also available at: https://thearbitration.org/ai-guidelines/ai-guidelines-1/. 

We would like to thank all those who have already provided their views. We intend to recognise those who have contributed to the public consultation in due course.

Chambers, and the members of the Drafting Subcommittee are Orlando Federico Cabrera Colorado, Elizabeth Chan, Dmitri Evseev, Marta Garcia Bel, Sofia Klot, Benjamin I.
