PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Description: 

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM

Objective
The rapid progress of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning raises key questions regarding benefits and risks related to the criminal justice system. Software is now to be found in devices of all descriptions that are by people to run their business and private lives. However, if AI could now be used to predict crime and as criminal intelligence tool, as things stand today, software programmes are not suitable recipients of criminal punishment, mainly because they cannot conceive of themselves as morally responsible agents and because they cannot understand the concept of retributive punishment.
This seminar is aimed at judges, lawyers, prosecutors and police investigators with a view to alerting the attendees to the fact that aspects of artificial intelligence are already in use today, and to indicate what changes are on the horizon in the very near future.

Target audience: 

Open to judges and prosecutors
