IBM Watson enters the US court

According to experts, artificial intelligence will reduce crime by 25%. Some US judges have already begun to use IBM Watson - for example, in Montgomery County, Ohio, IBM's artificial intelligence will help with making decisions about juvenile deeds.
Over the last 30 years, the number of prisoners in the US has increased fourfold and reached 2.3 million people. 58% of them are either black or Latin Americans. According to US specialists, this is a racial disproportion, and now there is a way for a technological solution to the problem. According to a study by Cornell University, artificial intelligence may be more objective. Scientists have calculated that such AI systems can reduce crime by 24.8%, and can simply refuse to release bailiffs from the most dangerous. Also, AI may reduce the number of US prisoners by 42% and will be able to calculate prisoners where the probability of committing crimes is the smallest and they can be released. The algorithms will work equally for both black and white and white. While some of the experts support the deployment of AI in the judiciary, others are firmly of the opinion that AI should not be used for similar purposes. Their thesis is quite clear: for the time being there is no federal law in the United States or any standards for verifying the algorithms used. And this means that it is quite possible that such an AI is not as objective as it seems.
