    The conversation about how artificial intelligence (AI) might affect various areas of law (and other areas of life) has, in recent months, centred around ChatGPT which is just one application of AI. This article takes a broader view and assesses how AI, and technology more broadly, has begun to transform, and will continue to transform corporate insolvency law. While the pandemic has increased the adoption of technology in corporate insolvency processes, there is scope for further transformation. This article aims to survey the technological changes to corporate insolvency law and practice thus far and assess, based on current advances in technology, the potential for further transformation. It advances the argument that technology can improve efficiencies both prior to and during formal insolvency resolution processes. It therefore would be in the interests of every country to facilitate the adoption of technology at various points in the insolvency process. The article takes a cross-jurisdictional approach to identify tech advances in insolvency law across different countries based on which best practices and guidelines can be outlined.
