Artificial Intelligence being examined to improve efficiency and speed of judiciary

Artificial Intelligence will speed up the entire system

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being examined to check the possibilities of it for improving efficiency and speed of the judiciary in India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while virtually addressing an event in Ahmedabad, marking the diamond jubilee of the Gujarat High Court, said that along with the country the judicial system of India also stood up in the fight against Covid and improved.

The Prime Minister said “I thank the Supreme Court of India for giving legal sanctity to video conferencing and teleconferencing which has speeded up the e-proceedings in all courts. We are proud to say that our Supreme Court has become the largest Supreme Court in the world with maximum hearings through video conferencing. Our high courts and district courts are also hearing cases through video conferencing even during the difficult times like Covid”.

The Prime Minister also released a commemorative postage stamp marking 60 years of the Gujarat High Court.

“It is a matter of satisfaction for us that the Law Ministry, under the E-Courts Integrated Mission, by setting up the digital infrastructure has helped our courts to work virtually. The Digital India Mission is rapidly modernising the judicial system of the country. More than 18,000 courts in the country have been computerised”, the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister commented on the possibilities of using Artificial Intelligence in the judicial system by saying, “To make our judicial system future-ready, the use of AI is being explored. The use of AI will not only improve the efficiency of the judiciary but will also speed up the entire system. In all these efforts, the ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’ campaign will play a major role.”

“Working with the National Informatics Centre (NIC), the e-committee of the Supreme Court is working towards improving the efficiency of the judiciary. While maintaining tight security, work is on to develop cloud-based infrastructure”, the Prime Minister said.

Unlike the natural intelligence displayed by humans, Artificial Intelligence is intelligence demonstrated by machines. AI usually labelled as AGI (Artificial General Intelligence), when attempts to emulate natural intelligence has been called ABI (Artificial Biological Intelligence). AI is often used to describe machines or computers that mimic “cognitive” functions that humans associate with their minds like “learning” and “problem solving”.
