Artificial intelligence (AI) is a “game-changing” technology. Its rapid progress raises complex challenges regarding benefits and risks for the criminal justice system. Although it is still at the infancy stage of its development with expectations often set too high, AI could bring benefits if it is used to predict crime and as a criminal intelligence tool. However, software programmes can malfunction and cause serious harm without being considered – as things stand today – “entities” subject to criminal liability.

After explaining the technical aspects of AI and its implications for privacy-preserving big data technologies, this conference will focus on how AI could be used in criminal proceedings, enabling the shift from a traditionally reactive approach to crime-fighting to one that is more proactive and preventative in character. It will discuss possible solutions for remedying the risks posed by AI and robotics in the criminal justice domain.

This event is aimed at judges, lawyers, prosecutors and police investigators with a view to highlighting the aspects of AI already in use today as well as the changes and opportunities on the horizon.
