AI will reshape the digital future of the judiciary with evidence-based and insight-driven justice, but trust in it demands strict, routine data audits, understanding of costs versus benefits, and expertise to guide long term strategy, as AI entrepreneur and researcher Amjad Zaim explains.

DELAWARE - Governments and all their branches are under enormous pressure to catch the bandwagon of fast-moving digitalization, and to secure their seats in the global information revolution. In particular, the legal and judicial sectors have historically trailed other sectors when it comes to going digital, fostering automation, and gaining information dominance.

However, this is slowly changing as civil, criminal, and economic judicial institutions around the world - both public and private - are waking up to the fact that there are huge volumes of data and information waiting to be taken advantage of, although they have still to comprehend or reap the benefits of adopting an evidence-based mindset, or to grasp the true cost of failing to adapt to the rising tides of digitalization and digital transformation.

Artificial intelligence (AI), or intelligence furnished by machines - as opposed to by humans - relies to a greater extent on digital litigative contents embedded in legal case management systems, documents archiving systems, court digital recordings, and others to fuel the demand for intelligence and automation. With so much diverse structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, AI has emerged as a viable and powerful technological tool that promises a transformational impact on the way judges, lawyers, and members of the judicial ecosystem as a whole process legal cases, transcribe court hearings and reach final resolutions and/or carry on with the mediation process. In short, AI is helping to shape the future digital and autonomous courts of tomorrow.
