UM law professor urges caution in AI-driven sentencing systems

July 31, 2023 — 

Law professor Katie Szilagyi explores the impact of AI in the courtroom, specifically focusing on “sentencing software.” Szilagyi emphasizes the need for caution, as the law’s evolution over centuries must not incorporate existing biases and prejudices into the future AI-driven legal landscape. Szilagyi highlights the importance of preserving human judgment, empathy, and a nuanced understanding of legal cases as a top priority while working to strike the delicate balance between embracing technology and safeguarding the core principles of justice.
