China Now Has An AI Judge To Assist Court Proceedings

China is said to be working on an AI judge which is the first of its kind in the world to take part in court proceedings.

In Daniel Kahneman’s book called Thinking Fast and Slow, he has written that there’s a connection between the time a judge had lunch and their leniency. And judges, are the ones, should not be making any mistakes. Is there any possible way to deal with this problem? Estonia and China think that AI should take the role of a judge.

China has been known for revealing AI counterparts for jobs that are supposed to belong to humans only. Last year, the country unveiled the very first AI human-like news anchor in the world.

A statement from the Beijing Internet Court reports that an AI judge will take part in court proceedings. The AI will be “the first of its kind in the world.”

The statement also claims that the AI will share some similarities with the human judges. The AI will represent a female judge with facial expressions, a voice as well as actions.

A statement from the Beijing Internet Court reports that an AI judge will take part in court proceedings.

The digital judge is created using “intelligent synthesizing technologies of speech and images.”

The most important thing is the AI will only assist the real judges with repetitive basic work which includes litigation reception. By doing this, professional practitioners can better focus on their trial work.

So essentially, AI won’t be taking part in making final decisions for any legal disputes. It will rather become judges’ assistant.

This could somehow be compared to smart cars’ assisted driving, where AI becomes a human’s assistant by keeping the car on the right track. But at the same time, the human driver has to stay alert all the time in case anything happens.

So by no means, AI is going to replace court judges entirely any time soon.

Back in March, there are reports about how Estonia was working on an AI judge which would also take part in court proceedings by making a final call. However, AI’s findings will still be revised by humans.
