Issues of AI Use in the Legal Sector

Artificial intelligence is now an integral part of our lives. Whether in the medical, advertising or community fields, its use provides significant benefits to organizations considering its ability to perform certain tasks much more efficiently than humans. It is therefore not surprising that several teams around the world are working to incorporate artificial intelligence in their fight against the pandemic. This is the case of Yoshua Bengio and his colleagues at Mila, who have created a mobile application to assess the level of risk that a person will be infected with COVID-19. 

  

Although the use of artificial intelligence in the context of a pandemic seems promising, we must keep in mind that the use of this technology can also have harmful consequences. Thus, this section of our scientific programming will focus on the challenges of artificial intelligence, particularly regarding privacy and the protection of personal information, democracy and ethics. We will also treat the current crisis as an opportunity for a reasoned deployment of artificial intelligence in various sectors, like the administration of justice. In short, this theme will stimulate reflection on the place that artificial intelligence should occupy in our society.
