Ai Legal Decision Making
Defining the goals and problems for deciding what training data to collect and how to label the data are also among the aspects that designers use when creating an algorithm (Završnik, 2019). Compiling databases and creating prediction algorithms always requires decisions made by humans. It is important to determine how this data is collected, cleaned and prepared. Governments around the world are developing AI and automated decision-making (ADM) systems to support all kinds of decisions that impact people`s lives, including determining benefits. education; Regulatory compliance and licensing; child protection; immigration; facial recognition and surveillance technology; and police work, bail and sentencing. The problem is not using algorithms and machine learning to control decision-making. It is about telling the public that these machines eliminate all human biases and are 100% objective when it has been proven time and time again that this is not correct. The LCO`s Accountable AI report examines key areas of AI regulation, AI litigation, human rights, administrative law, data protection and civil procedure to determine whether there are gaps or unanswered questions that need to be addressed in order to ensure meaningful legal liability for government AI systems. AI and ADM systems have the potential to transform government decision-making by improving the accuracy and consistency of decision-making and reducing backlogs. Despite this potential, government AI and ADM systems are controversial.
There are many examples of government AI and SMA systems that have been biased, mysterious, inefficient, and have caused significant harm to individuals and communities. “Black boxes” have become a term coined to describe machine learning algorithms because they work in ways that no one can understand. Algorithms repeatedly adapt and weight inputs differently to improve the accuracy of their predictions, and so people struggle to understand how and why algorithms achieve the results they get (Deeks, 2019). This has become a problem in understanding the decisions made by machines, especially in the judicial system. The ICO`s AI and Privacy Guidelines explore a number of other challenges associated with AI in the context of automated decision-making, including: When decisions are made based on a score, what message does this send to prisoners who may have already been discriminated against by the institutional system? It reinforces various narratives of stereotypes that add another obstacle and obstacle to equality in society. In the meantime, people only have to accept the decision of a computer. People deserve to know why they are living the lives they are living on the basis of the justice system. Instead, they protect the commercial interests of private enterprise. This calls into question the principle of procedural justice, open justice and individualized justice. The process of using an algorithm is mostly invisible and no one can verify its validity and reliability, but people`s lives are at stake. This is not justice.
AI-informed decision-making and prediction occurs when algorithms are applied to datasets with automated tasks using neural networks and deep learning to make decisions that the court uses (Agrawal et al., 2019). Automated decision-making is allowed if it is based on explicit consent, contractual necessity, EU law or eu Member State law and if the following measures have been taken: Mckay, C. (2019). Prediction of risks in criminal proceedings: actuarial tools, algorithms, AI and judicial decision-making. Current Issues in Criminal Justice, 32(1), 22-39. doi.org/10.1080/10345329.2019.1658694 These algorithms in the legal and judicial system use data from events in the past, when people knew that the system had been stacked against minorities for centuries. So far, the data does not take into account why the data is as it is. Technology cannot change the future if machines are already using distorted data. The world is constantly changing, and there must be room for people to break the cycle and not be constantly stigmatized under the guise of technology. Distortions must be taken into account. Artificial intelligence (“AI”) systems are often used to support or automate decision-making.
While there are general measures of the performance of AI systems, there is still no established metric to assess the quality of certain AI recommendations or decisions. This poses a serious problem with the emerging use of AI in legal applications, as the legal system strives to achieve good performance not only overall, but also on a case-by-case basis. This article introduces the concept of using the closest neighbors to evaluate the individual performance of AI. This analysis of the nearest neighbor has the advantage of being easy to understand and applies to judges, lawyers and jurors. In addition, it is basically compatible with existing AI methods. This article explains how the concept could be applied to examine AI outcomes in a number of use cases, including civil discoveries, risk prediction, and forensic comparisons, while presenting its limitations. We analyze the space where the rules for automated decision-making overlap with the use of AI in conjunction with personal data. The creation and commercialization of these systems raises the question of how liability risks will affect in real life. However, given that technical progress has overtaken lawsuits, it`s unclear how the law will treat AI systems. This article briefly examines the legal implications and liability risks associated with reliance on or delegation to AI systems, and outlines a framework that suggests how we can address the question of whether AI deserves a new approach to addressing the liability challenges it raises when humans remain “in” or “on” the loop.
Automated decision-making is a processing activity that carries many risks from a data protection point of view. When complex and sophisticated AI is added, these risks become all the more increased. This applies in particular in cases where the data subjects and the persons behind the decision-making process are not able to fully understand the technology underlying the processing and therefore challenge or control it. Organizations that make automated decisions involving the use of AI need to be aware of these issues and the associated obligations in this area. This evaluation process allows decision-makers to formulate expectations in terms of probabilities and confidence in the results of the perceived situation. These subjective values, assigned to the different options, allow a comparison of the results, including the consequences. Cognitive biases can sometimes obscure judgment, especially when it comes to making decisions. Cognitive biases can occur when creating patterns that directly affect how decisions are made in certain areas. Although there are many types of prejudices, some subconscious and conscious can influence all kinds of prejudices about how you see the world and therefore how you make decisions when designing an algorithm.
Predictions can be useful because they fuel decision-making. However, prediction has no value if no decision is made. Nor is prediction the only element in making a decision. Risk assessment has become an essential part of the criminal justice system and law enforcement. Case law shows a review of risk-related terminology, including risk management, risk profile, risk factors, risk behaviours, and risk relapses (Mckay, 2019). Now, AI is being used to measure the prediction of risky behaviors in humans. Risk assessments are used at various procedural decision points such as bail, conviction, and probation (Agrawal et al., 2019). Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere and in all sectors. Technological advancements can improve people`s daily lives and achieve amazing results at high speed.
However, AI also has the potential to be biased and harm individuals, depending on the use and design of algorithms.
