Abstract

There has been a trend lately of suggesting that robot judges (so-called robo-judges) will be able to determine the guilt of a defendant by merely using state-of-the-art sensory devices to watch and hear the accused. Besides the questionable aspects of whether this can or should be done, it also misportrays what AI-based judge-related systems might genuinely provide as an added value to adjudication
