ERA: Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Criminal Justice System


24 Oct 2019 to 25 Oct 2019


  Rome  --



Event Description


The rapid progress of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning raises key questions regarding benefits and risks for the criminal justice system. AI could be 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.

This seminar is aimed at judges, lawyers, prosecutors and police investigators with a view to highlighting the aspects of artificial intelligence already in use today as well as the changes and opportunities on the horizon in the very near future.

Key topics

  • What AI is and what judges and lawyers need to know
  • Robots causing harms practical issues for police investigations
  • AI in hospitals and criminal proceedings against nursing staff: case studies
  • Using AI in criminal intelligence
  • AI used to predict crimes
  • AI and the judicial system
  • The 2018 CEPEJ “European Ethical Charter on the Use of AI in Judicial Systems and their environment”
