Today we’re going to talk about a very interesting subject – Artificial Intelligence in Judiciary. The Supreme Court’s Artificial Intelligence Committee on Tuesday launched its Artificial Intelligence portal SUPACE – which is short for Supreme Court Portal for Assistance in Courts Efficiency. The specially designed system was inaugurated by CJI SA Bobde, who called it a ‘perfect blend of human intelligence and machine learning and ‘a hybrid system’, which works together with human intelligence. He said it’s the first of its kind system in the world as it would collect all the information, much faster than a human being, which a judge would require to decide a case, but it itself will not come out with a decision. Allaying apprehensions that the new technology will in any manner influence the outcome of a litigation, the CJI said the autonomy and discretion of judges will remain intact with no interference from the software. CJI-designate Justice N V Ramana, also welcomed the new system saying it is time saving and would help reduce the pendency of cases that the apex court is burdened with. So how will this new AI-based system help in reducing delays and pendency of cases? And how will it help in making justice delivery more efficient is what we will discuss on the show today.
