Seminar by Fabrice Muhlenbach


This talk addresses issues related to the ethical consequences of using AI technologies in court decisions. With the prodigious technological leap made in the field of artificial intelligence in recent years, disruptive innovations have affected many business sectors, with economic, social and ethical consequences.
But what do people really want about the application of artificial intelligence technologies in the law system? This talk presents a general methodological approach to take into account the ethical aspect of the introduction a new technology in a given domain. We apply this methodology in the specific case of the introduction of AI technologies in the law system. As a multidisciplinary working group interested in this application in the case of France, we have organized a series of workshops to discuss this topic and highlight the respective values and interests of each stakeholder. The result of this work in presented in the form of an ethical matrix that can be used as a tool by the public authorities to help decision-making on the subject with a prioritization of certain values in order to reflect the expectations of the citizens while ensuring respect for fundamental rights.
This work will be presented at ICAIL 2019 Conference (International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law) at Montreal, Canada, in June 2019 : 

This seminar will be held in english.
