I read this article last semester and thought it was cool. It proposes the framework for an algorithm that can be used to measure legal quality. However, the framework can be used to develop algorithms that measure anything to which we assign relative value or quality.
I think using this framework for developing decision making algorithms could have a tremendous impact on the law and in business. This is especially true when consideration is given to the effect that data collection and machine learning could have on the development of algorithms.
