MOSCOW, June 3 (RAPSI) – The artificial intelligence (AI) systems can help professional judges analyze data, but they are unlikely to be assigned to court sentencing, according to Ruslan Ibragimov, Director for Legal Research of HSE University.

“By intelligence we often understand the experience of a person and society as a whole, we are speaking about information. The machine receives information as well which means that it gains human experience. However, experience is not the only key element. We are distinguished by the insight that helps us make discoveries, progress, move forward... And the judge also has this element of insight,” Ibragimov said at the Digital Industry of Industrial Russia conference.

The judge studies all the evidence, questions witnesses in order to have a full picture of the case, however, when a decision is made the concept of justice is exploited. The judge relies not only on evidence, but also takes into account a number of nuances, including emotional factors that the machine is unable to process, according to Ibragimov.

“it is impossible to take into account all circumstances and aspects of life, it is impossible to apply the algorithm to any situation. Therefore, it is too early to say that the artificial intelligence could be applied to court sentencing”, Ibragimov said.
