Abstract

Artificial intelligence (AI) has extended its origins in a variety of fields over the years by using the philosophy of teaching machines to learn and perform complex tasks that previously required significant human labor. Artificial intelligence (AI) and law have received a lot of attention lately. But what exactly is AI, and how does it relate to legal practice and administration? This article answers those questions by offering a high-level overview of artificial intelligence (AI) and its legal applications. The debate will be complex, but it will also be clear to those who do not have a professional context. To that end, I'll first go over AI generally. Then I move on to AI and how it is being used by judges, citizens and businesses who are regulated by the rules, and so on and government officials in charge of enforcing the law. One of the main motivations for writing this article was to have a practical, de-mystified view of AI that is based on the technology's actual capabilities. This is intended to be a counterpoint to debates about AI and law that are distinctly futurist in nature. The body of work speculates on the consequences of AI technologies that do not yet occur and may or may not exist in the future. Although futurist discussions have their position, it's important to recognize that they often include major, and often unsupported, assumptions about where technology is headed. This speculative debate often diverts attention away from the critical, but perhaps less exotic, legal and policy issues that AI technology raises today.
