Un algorithme capable de prédire les décisions des juges : vers une robotisation de la justice ?

Abstract : British and American researchers have just created an artificial intelligence capable of predicting court decisions. In almost 600 cases judged by the European Court of Human Rights, the algorithm has adopted the same solution as judges eight times out of ten. The fact that a judge-robot most often makes the same choices as human judges credited the thesis of a syllogistic and mechanical justice, not the thesis of a justice left to the subjectivity of the judges. Moreover, this algorithmic justice experience raises the question of a computer-assisted justice. Finally, predictive justice, which is developing particularly in the United States, can also help lawyers by allowing them to estimate the probability of winning a case.
