A judicial AI called Xiao Zhi 3.0 or Little Wisdom is already helping lawsuits against 10 people who failed to repay their bank loans. I think the Chinese courts go one step further. A district court in China’s Hangzhou city has begun using an AI judge assistance program to provide instant justice.
Called Xiao Zhi 3.0, or Little Wisdom, this AI tool was initially introduced to help 10 or more people who were unable to repay their bank loans.
This new AI tool will significantly speed up China’s justice system as it can handle all small, routine cases. This latest lawsuit, involving more than 10 parties, took about 10 courts and a week to resolve. Meanwhile, Xiao Zhi worked through all 10 of his cases together and came to a conclusion in just over 30 minutes.
Xiao Zhi also took this position and announced the trial at the hearing. Courts have been known to make many identical statements, including procedural statements.
In addition, Xiao Jie analyzes case materials, uses his database and intelligence to verify them, and listens to eyewitness testimony to gather case information. Similar AI tools are also used in other Chinese courts to resolve traffic disputes, but Xiao Zhi is now primarily used in financial disputes.
While discussing AI, law professor Shitong Qiao of the Duke Law School said, “It seems that Chinese courts are tempted to use AI even in criminal cases.” The challenge is he is one. They want to make sure the penalties are the same across all parts of China.
His Zhiyu Li, assistant professor of law and political science at Durham University, sees it differently. He said, “Judges and prosecutors are free to ignore or reject these proposals for criminal punishment, but doing so may unconsciously influence decision-making based on cognitive biases.” I don’t know.” But he has other beliefs.
