Automated negotiation

Negotiate with a machine! Or even worse, negotiate between machines… Machine based negotiation is already with us. How far can it expand and what are the implications for the human negotiator?

FAQs about the technology

What happens if I can’t watch the live discussion?

Don’t worry! Realtime participation is not a mandatory part of this course, but it is fun and we think you’d get a lot out of it. A recording of the discussion will be available at the same address above after the live event finishes. You can still make a contribution by leaving your question or comments on this step in advance, and we may include some of these in the discussion.

Will watching the live discussion mean I appear on camera?

No, you will just watch the live stream like any other video (though Google users can submit comments via the interface).

Is a Google account required to view the live discussion?

No, you can watch the Hangout without logging in to Google. If you wish to submit comments, please either use the methods above.
