»Algorithmic Justice for Deciding on Criminal Matters?«
As »algorithmic governance« progresses in modern technological societies, justice systems come gradually to the forefront. In light of the EU and the Council of Europe initiatives on »Ethics guidelines for trustworthy AI systems« (2021) and on a »European Ethical Charter on the use of artificial intelligence in judicial systems« (CEPEJ, 2018) aiming to address essential risks for the rule of law that accompany the use of algorithmic tools, the presentation focuses on the different fields of AI-assisted criminal justice, which is related to the harshest mechanism of social control. It highlights the pros and particularly the cons of the algorithmic tools’ use in the field of criminal matters under the perspective of fundamental rights and principles of criminal law and tries to define priorities for their future use.
Maria Kaiafa-Gbandi is Professor of Criminal Law at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She is also Director of the »Research Institute for Transparency, Corruption and Financial Crime« of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and a member of the Expert Group of the European Commission on European Criminal Justice.
From September 2021 to February 2022 she is, on the invitation of Professor Klaus Günther and the Frankfurt Research Center »Normative Orders«, a fellow at the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften.
