Lawyers, judges, and juries may all be headed away, at least in China. Apparently, a new AI set of programming has been developed and tested that will gather information and file charges based on the information it gathers. The accuracy is claimed at 97%, and that sounds good, unless you are the accused. The crimes it specializes in include credit card fraud, gambling, theft, and… political dissent. As this is a part of the government, and there is only one good political party in China’s eyes, even arguing against this may possibly count as political dissent. Uh oh!

Researchers in China created a machine that can file a charge with more than 97 percent accuracy based on a description of a suspected criminal case.
