China Creates Robot Prosecutor with Artificial Intelligence


Chinese researchers are using artificial intelligence (AI) technology to create prosecutors who can indict criminal suspects with up to 97% accuracy.

This AI-based prosecutor was developed by a research team from the large data and knowledge management laboratory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences led by Professor Shi Young.

He claimed that the Prosecutor could determine the crime and file charges based solely on verbal descriptions of what happened.

The AI ​​prosecutor program currently runs on desktop computers and was developed to its current state after the team trained it between 2015 and 2020 using more than 17,000 different criminal cases.

Currently AI prosecutors can indict suspects with 1000 different traits derived from human case documentation.

And it can also be used to indict some of the most common crimes in Shanghai including fraud, credit card fraud, theft, willful damage, reckless driving, illegal gambling, to provoking trouble.

This is not the first time China has used AI in its justice system. In 2016, Chinese legislators introduced to System 206 an AI tool capable of evaluating evidence and conditions of arrest and determining how dangerous a suspect is to the general public.

The new AI attorney will now work in tandem with System 206, and fill the void left by the older program of filing charges and suggesting what penalties should be imposed for individual crimes.

If all goes according to plan, the new AI prosecutors will be designed to be able to help the justice system by reducing the workload of human prosecutors and allowing them to devote more time to handling more difficult and complex cases.

Yet despite the potential benefits the system might provide there are still some who are concerned about allowing computers to indict people for their crimes.

Thus, it remains to be evaluated by the AI ​​prosecutor whether its implementation will be better or worse in the future, as reported by us from Mashable, Friday (12/31/2021).
