Chinas Recent AI Project – AI Prosecutor
Using artificial intelligence, Chinese researchers have developed a machine that can charge people with crimes. This is the first developed country in the world.

Shanghai Pudong People’s Procuratorate, China’s largest and busiest district prosecution office, designed and tested it.
It’s possible that it’ll run on a desktop computer. The prosecutor would file a charge against each suspect based on 1,000 traits extracted from human-generated case description text.
More than 17,000 cases were used to “train” the machine between 2015 and 2020.
