Readiness of the judicial sector for artificial intelligence in Latin America

About the publication

The Artificial Intelligence area of CETyS publishes its assessment of the readiness of the judicial sector in Latin America to responsibly adopt artificial intelligence technologies in their processes.

The publication includes 5 research papers by a multidisciplinary team of 11 researchers from the region who specifically analyze the cases of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay. The papers identify the current use of AI and related digital technologies by the judicial sector; an assessment of their potential application to address their key needs and challenges; and also the debate on critical issues in design and implementation related to fairness, accountability and judicial independence.

In turn, an analytical framework is presented that allows stakeholders in the region to conduct their own assessment of the needs, obstacles and opportunities of the judicial sector in adopting AI technologies in their processes.

The project was selected and funded by the Tinker  Foundation.
