to the Commission
Rule 138
Lucia Ďuriš Nicholsonová (ECR)

 Subject:  Artificial intelligence — issuing judicial and administrative decisions

In view of ongoing judicial challenges in the Member States, consideration should be given to the possibility of using artificial intelligence in the decision-making process in the judiciary or in administrative proceedings. Problems such as corruption among judges, weak enforcement of the law and delays in court proceedings have long been on the decline in the new Member States, including Slovakia. Solutions based on artificial intelligence could help in collecting data, recommending appropriate forms of sanctions, predicting the likelihood of recurrence, or suggesting decisions in simple cases, thereby relieving judges and ensuring the same decisions in cases with the same legal grounds or form. Judges could then deal with the more complex cases. The Council of Europe is exploring these options through the CEPEJ, which is also supported by the Commission. The EU is partly addressing them through the e-Justice project. As the Member States already have some experience, comprehensive data and analyses at their disposal, the drafting of non-binding recommendations or ‘best practices’ would be welcomed by legal professionals and others.

Could the Commission draw up or arrange an expert analysis to examine the relevant aspects of artificial intelligence decision-making, on the basis of which it would make recommendations to the Member States?

How does the Commission plan to support the introduction of artificial intelligence into the judiciary?

How does the Commission plan to ensure that algorithms are supervised to ensure that the fundamental values defined in Article 2 TEU are not violated?
