ODR.com’s CEO Colin Rule presented at the first FOTA Global conference in London on September 16, 2022.
The Future of Technology in Arbitration 2022 (FOTA22) conference is the first ever global gathering focused on sharing the very latest in cutting-edge technologies that will transform arbitration as we know it today, tomorrow, and in the years to come.
FOTA22 brought arbitration specialists and technology professionals together in a unique format. The newest and best legal technologies were on display for demonstration and explanation for attendees to experience first-hand via the FOTA Showcase. Multiple panels of expert speakers examined, explored and debated these technologies through an arbitration lens; considering their impact on alternative dispute resolution.
The conference took place at the Institute of Engineering Technology in London ahead of ICCA Edinburgh 2022. The first of its kind, this conference will follow ICCA around the world biennially in years to come, showcasing the most significant technology developments for arbitration as the decade progresses.
Colin presented via zoom on a panel discussing the impact of the metaverse on arbitration, and he even assumed an avatar (of a cat wearing a hoodie) during the discussion with his fellow panelists, who were on stage at the Institute of Engineering.
