Yesterday I realized how ChatGPT, a free and popular AI (Artificial Intelligence) app, can help mediation trainees practice and hone their skills.
In short, I asked ChatGPT to play the parties’ role (Landlord and Tenant sent to mediation by a judge) in a simulation with me playing the mediator’s role.
Obviously, these simulations have some limits. For example, they are text-based (rather than online or in-person). And they are “virtual”, with no real persons playing the parties’ roles.
And yet, I believe that this tool might be useful to mediation trainees. Right after their basic mediation training, they could run as many simulations as they like - by themselves, on their time and at their pace.
If you’re interested to take a look at what an online mediation simulation with ChatGPT looks like, please send me an email. I’d be glad to send you yesterday’s transcript (in pdf format).
