Computable contracts are legal contracts that are formulated in computer-understandable form. Such contracts are emerging in multiple sectors including finance, law, e-commerce, insurance, and procurement, to name a few. This panel will address the state-of-the-art of computable contract technology.

John Cummins was honoured to be a panel member among a number of distinguished experts including Professor Oliver Goodenough and Professor Harry Surden (Moderator).
