It will always be too early. In no way should AI do criminal justice work.

Why? In theory it should be consistently rule-based.

Yes, and in-theory a lot of things would be great.

Never know till you try. Just data based I’d love to see the letter of the law print out. Not opinion

Laws all have wiggle room for judges to give harsher or lighter sentences based on circumstances. There are very few laws that are ironclad enough in their wording for a machine to be able to interpret them correctly 100% of the time.

Might be better than half the judges these days. Cite the precedent and the exact letter of the law. Realistically I think an AI print out with a recommendation -paired with a human judge would go far.

“Welp the AI recommends 10 years and $X fine because that’s the law buuuuuuut I’m going to do 6 months and $0” would at least make it more blatant when judges disregard the letter of the law.

In theory is the key. As an example, look up the story about Meta's AI scientific paper generator which they posted to GitHub earlier this week. They pulled it down after 2 days. Early users identified that it was inherently biased against POC and also generates a lot of false claims.

But research paper writing is an inherently creative process, even if research methods themselves are not. Thats very different. Also, i followed the story and it generated surprisingly correct claims. The problem was, that it made up sources and therefore encouraged junk science and academic dishonesty. Going as far as asigning fake papers to real authors of a field.

This has absolutely no relation to passing judgement on are comparing an AIs dataset to another AI dataset with completely different entries. AI doesnt go against POC, AI doesnt even know wtf POC is...conclusions like this only show that people have absolutely no clue how AI works and base a lot of their judgements on plain ignorance.

There's a lot more to the criminal justice system than rules. A lot of nuance happens in the implementation of laws and, frankly, the reason behind a crime is sometimes more important than the crime itself.
