9-Year-Old Wins Prize in Smartsettle One Competition
May 20, 2008
The latest competition at the International eNegotiation Tournament featuring the new Smartsettle One system ended Thursday with a surprising finalist.
Nine-year-old Jade Larson, daughter of Dr. David Larson, a speaker at the 2008 Forum on Online Dispute Resolution (ODR), achieved third place in a Smartsettle One competition hosted by the International eNegotiation Tournament. The full slate of top performers are posted here at the Tournament website.
Smartsettle is most widely known for its Infinity software, the world’s only multi-issue, multi-party online negotiation system. The company has now established another important landmark- distilling the vision and basic functionality of Smartsettle Infinity into an easy-to-use single-issue negotiation system, Smartsettle One.
During the Forum in Victoria last week, delegates participated in the competition, trying the new web-based application using real world scenarios as case contexts. As one of the youngest delegates at the conference, Jade Larson added a new dimension of enthusiasm to the gathering, influencing keynote speaker and Internet pioneer, Vinton Cerf's opening remarks when he said that ODR has come a long way, such that a 9-year-old has demonstrated usability of new technologies.

Smartsettle One Competition
Read about the hypothetical negotiation case and familiarize yourself with the rules now. Then come back near the beginning of Cyberweek, create you account and enter negotiations with other participants. You can start and end any time during Cyberweek. Each negotiation should only take a few minutes of your time. Depending on how responsive your opponents are, you may need to visit the site several times over the span of Cyberweek. Check out the Smartsettle One demonstration to see how it works. All of the above information is available by clicking on the following link:
Smartsettle Infinity to One
For newcomers to Cyberweek, a little history is in order. Past Cyberweek participants have had the opportunity to use what we now call Smartsettle Infinity, an eNegotiation system that is applicable to virtually any type of case with any number of negotiators. Smartsettle Infinity uses optimization algorithms to put negotiators in control of a multivariate blind bidding process that quickly produces outcomes that are both fair and efficient. Smartsettle Infinity has been referred to as “the most sophisticated and powerful eNegotiation system on the Internet”, but another persistent theme has been; “Make it simpler, simpler, simpler...”
Mission accomplished: Nothing CAN be simpler than ONE. Smartsettle One.
