Chief Justice of India S A Bobde on Tuesday (26 November) said the Supreme Court is considering a proposal to introduce artificial intelligence (AI) to aid the administration of the justice delivery system. He also clarified that judges would not be replaced by AI.
The Chief Justice said that while technology has enabled them to go paperless in many courts and go digital, if not all the way, then substantially, in many courts, they now have the benefit of modern artificial intelligence tools that will assist in improving the efficiency of the justice system through sophisticated and contextual automation.
Speaking at the Constitution Day function organised by the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), he insisted that the automation of existing repetitive non-judicial tasks and functions will reduce pendency, and expedite judicial adjudication, which will eventually create more time for judges to resolve complex cases.
Chief Justice Bobde said, "We recognise that machines are not substitutes for the knowledge and wisdom of judges and that the law functions in a uniquely complex environment that lawyers and judges are best placed to navigate."
