Project Title: e-Arbitration / Mediation Cloud Services Platform
Hosting Institution: LSCM R&D Centre (LSCM)
Abstract: Throughout the years, Hong Kong is renowned as one of the regions's prime venues for dispute resolution through arbitration and mediation, thanks to its mature and well developed legal system and the existence of a large pool of experienced professionals.

Now, the Belt and Road initiative is creating opportunities to build and grow Hong Kong’s role as a dispute resolution hub for Belt and Road projects. This in turn will create opportunities for dispute resolution services in Hong Kong.

In the project proposed, we are going to research and develop the e-Arbitration /Mediation Cloud Services platform. Continuous Re-authentication and Object Policy technology will be the core module to tackle the unattended logged-on issue. AI Machine Translation technology will be used to provide domain-specific language translation service.

By implementation of the technologies, we are targeting:
- to showcase Hong Kong’s innovation and technological ability
- to enhance Hong Kong’s role as an international city in Asia
- to provide business opportunities for the arbitration / mediation professionals of Hong Kong
