The Federation Council is discussing the introduction of AI into judicial activity
The authorities are preparing amendments to the Arbitration Procedure Code and the Code of Administrative Offences to improve the work of the judicial system.
After the discussions, the authorities unified all the collected proposals and sent them for further consideration.
In addition, the authors will separately consider the possibility of amending legislation related to the use of artificial intelligence technologies in judicial activities. Moreover, issues related to the use of neural networks may emerge in the standards of legal education of lawyers in the future.
The issue of including AI in legal proceedings has been under consideration by the authorities since 2021. This issue became sufficiently thriving as the result of the introduction of ChatGPT from Open AI in early 2023. Many states have currently prohibited judges from using artificial intelligence in their activity. The judicial community has already rejected the idea of replacing the judge with a neural network. According to some officials, artificial intelligence is an inanimate object and is not able to explore the psychological motives of individuals, which means that it cannot be allowed to reach the “judge’s chair”.
