Digital Justice: How AI is Changing the Way China Handles Court Cases

Dubbed Xiao Zhi 3.0, or Little Wisdom, the Justice AI has already helped prosecute 10 people who failed to repay bank loans.

The use of AI in the court system is becoming increasingly prevalent in China, with the introduction of the AI judge assistant program, Xiao Zhi 3.0. This advanced technology is designed to provide instant justice and make the Chinese justice system more efficient.

Xiao Zhi was first used in a trial of over 10 people who were unable to repay their bank loans. The AI was able to resolve all 10 cases and deliver a decision in just over 30 minutes, which would have taken around 10 different court sessions and weeks worth of time in traditional court proceedings.

This AI tool is capable of handling all small and daily life cases, making the Chinese justice system a lot faster. It also takes over the job of announcing court procedures during hearings, and is able to collect case information, analyze materials, and verify them through its database and intelligence.

Currently, the Xiao Zhi is mostly being used in financial disputes, but similar AI tools are being used in other Chinese courts for settling traffic disputes.

While some experts see the benefits of AI in the court system, such as ensuring uniformity in penalties across different regions of China, others raise concerns about the potential for AI to unconsciously sway decision-making due to cognitive biases.

It is important to keep in mind that while AI can assist in the court system, it is ultimately the responsibility of human judges to make the final decisions and weigh all the evidence presented.
