Artificial intelligence and robots will streamline justice

The EU is moving to implement, with the use of artificial intelligence and robotics, the digitisation of public administrations and judicial offices. The goal is to make justice more efficient and less slow by using predictive systems that could assist the judge in the decision-making phase or the lawyers in establishing a case. For lawyer Stefano Trifirò of the law firm Trifirò & Partners,  he believes we are moving in the right direction since “the tools of legal analytics (LA), where different disciplines converge, such as data science, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP) allow you to identify trends and make predictions related to judicial decisions. Predictive justice, based on the use of artificial intelligence and robotics will in no way detract from the work of the lawyer and magistrate. Far from it.” The use of machine learning can be a great support in the activities of the courts. There is numerous software on the market that read and analyse legal documents and AI is of great help in automating and performing many of these tasks. “The Recovery Plan decree also sets out precisely this: the digitisation of judicial proceedings and the acceleration of the timing of justice, as well as the establishment of the ‘office for the trial’ in which professional judges could make use of technical staff of support with the use of software and digital structures” adds Trifirò. “The project also provides for the creation of seven new centres on emerging technologies with highly qualified personnel with the establishment of a national centre for artificial intelligence. At the moment in Italy, research with legal analytics techniques is still in an embryonic state and takes place in very few research centres. The IUSS of Pavia, for example, is carrying out an intense research activity in the legal field using artificial intelligence techniques and notions of linguistics. Inside, the first research centre on Artificial Intelligence, Technology and Law (AI, Tech & Law) was created with the aim of developing legal research with language and information technologies”. A first step for a real revolution in the forensic field.
