Artificial intelligence (“AI”) is no longer a precursor to the future—it is already here in the mainstream. Some countries, for example, have started to implement AI-based technologies into their adjudication processes. It has been reported that Estonia is currently developing an AI judge that can adjudicate small claims disputes of less than º7,000 and that China already has digital courts presided over by an AI judge. Together with the triggering effect of such futuristic news, AI studies that predict the outcome of litigation have stirred heated debate about the possible arrival of AI judges.
