Position: Computable Contracts Developer 

About CodeX

The Stanford Centre for Legal Informatics recently launched a multi-year, multi-institutional effort to bring the technology of computable contracts to the insurance industry. In many areas it is possible to codify the terms of contracts in computable form, to make these computable contracts available to all parties in an online contract ecosystem and to use this ecosystem to provide users of all stripes with answers to real and hypothetical questions about the terms of these contracts.
