European country plans to rely on robotic judges instead of humans
A European state has designed an artificial intelligence-based automatically judge to issue judgements in small backlog cases.
According to the Daily Mail, artificial intelligence will be shared with legal documents in the Estonian State, to be analyzed before a decision is reached.
The automated judge is to rule on financial disputes of less than $8, 000, so as to reduce pressure on human judges, and give them more time to work on major issues.
The judge’s provisions would be legally binding, but they could be appealed before a human judge.
The project is in its early stages and no specific date has been announced for the start of its implementation, but officials have indicated that it is part of a larger artificial intelligence project to be announced in May/May.
Estonia is a pioneer in technology development and is one of the most willing to rely on artificial intelligence and robotics.
