A heartfelt "Thank You" to all my dispute resolution colleagues near and far who've seen fit to bestow a digital attaboy over the years. Whether at the table, podium, or computer, my work has been sustained through your supportive comments and encouragement to continue exploring further still.

Woke to a very pleasant read this morning by +Julia Thackray in +Solicitors Journal on my talk at the +Academy of Professional Family Mediators' annual conference.

"essential reading for all involved in family mediation," or so they're saying across the pond!

Working on final edits to a research report two-years in the making and covering two passions definitely worth blending: technology and #ADR.

Pretty sure there aren't too many published dispute resolution articles referencing APIs, augmented reality, big data, machine learning, moonshots, recurrent neural networks, nowcasting, the Turing test, the uncanny valley, and unicorns, eh, +Colin Rule?! Its safe to say that this has, by far, been the most enjoyable paper I've ever written!

Forthcoming in the inaugural 2016 issue of Mediation Theory and Practice, the title and abstract are as follows:

At the Nexus of Big Data and Dispute Resolution: A Case Study on Conflict-Related Search Data

Creative integration of traditional and previously unaligned data will change the dispute resolution field. With increasing analytic capacity and sophistication available to attend larger and more diverse sets of data, the field can expect fundamental shifts in its understanding of the dispute resolution marketplace, the surfacing of opportunities to satisfy that market, and the ability to monitor the resulting impact of interventions from the personal to broad societal levels. The included case study is an example of the consequence and opportunities emerging from the nexus of big data and dispute resolution.

This study presents findings from an ongoing project that has analyzed over 225 million annual conflict-related search queries to better understand the scope and scale of conflict in America. The frequency, location, sentimentality, and timing of 52,203 unique conflict search terms were monitored for every U.S. County. Analysis has revealed the public’s collective interests and conflict intensities within 225 distinct conflict contexts, many of which have cyclical trends that can inform resource development and deployment efforts. It has allowed for the creation of maps detailing where conflict strongly arrests or strangely avoids local populations. Finally, it has revealed new insights into how the public prioritizes frames for their conflicts and their preferred resolutions.

At the Nexus of Big Data and Dispute Resolution: A Case Study on Conflict-Related Search Data

"By relying exclusively on currently available technology, this particular dataset contains the prospect of illuminating the context of where conflict has, is, and likely will occur, allowing the dispute resolution and aligned professions to design and deploy their services accordingly."

This is what data-informed opportunity looks like!

2015 has been a truly excellent year for sharing several of +Advancing Dispute Resolution’s #BigData  projects. Throughout the year, I’ve been honored to keynote five state/international dispute resolution conferences and share our latest data-informed insights with over 750 practitioners from around the country and throughout our field. The receptions have been exceptional and colleagues’ increasing appetites for even more tech-infused ADR data analyses means I’ll be focusing an even greater portion of my time on this area moving forward.

Our growing list of 2016 data- and tech-centered projects include custom surveys, collaborative advertising campaigns, large-scale consumer research, practitioner and program data analysis, web analytics, and an ADR moonshot or two just for fun! As these projects expand our growing cache of data-informed dispute resolution insights, I’m looking forward to further connecting with familiar and new audiences from throughout our field. 1s and 0s may set the mind awhirl, but the hugs and handshakes help the passion pound onward!

Many thanks to the leadership and members of the +Academy of Professional Family Mediators, +Conflict Resolution Minnesota, +New York State Dispute Resolution Association, Inc.+Texas Association of Mediators, and +Virginia Mediation Network for all their exceptional gatherings and memorable hospitality!

I can't believe it's already been a month since +New York State Dispute Resolution Association, Inc.'s 2015 Annual Conference! The folks and the conversations which took place there were among the best I've had. Very thoughtful crew with lots of energy around leveraging technology and data to help shape the future of dispute resolution in New York.

My keynote on that very topic -- which this poorly-centered groupie chronicles -- featured the initial unwrapping of +Advancing Dispute Resolution's next data-centered project aimed at better understanding the dispute resolution marketplace. Having now had an opportunity to share some of these findings with even more colleagues during the +Academy of Professional Family Mediators's conference last week, I'm pleased to say the interest and demand for even further data/analysis will be keeping me busy for quite some time!

Here's to finally marrying analysis with anecdotes, and to moving the dispute resolution field further, faster!

Just concluded an excellent conversation with folks at the +Academy of Professional Family Mediators' Annual Conference. Before we dove into the big data of dispute resolution and consumers' preferences, we took a coffee-infused 360º groupie. The onsite fun and tech quickly escalated from there!
