Workshop on Computation, Mathematics, and the Law

Date and Time:

Friday, March 21, 2014 – Saturday, March 22, 2014

Location:

Warren Hall 3C

Details:

**By invitation only**

The USD Center for Computation, Mathematics & Law examines and develops applications of cutting-edge computational and mathematical theory and techniques for the solution of legal problems and the practice of law. Topics for this workshop are likely to include computational modeling of litigation and settlement, network models of legal precedent, quantum computing as a framework for understanding uncertainty in the law, algorithmic techniques for searching through large sets of legal data, XML structures of legal information, legal artificial intelligence, and predictive coding algorithms for reducing the costs of electronic discovery.
