Predictive justice and artificial intelligence. The report for the Lawyers’ Congress

On Friday 7 October, within the framework of the Lawyers’ Congress, we presented the first Report of the Organismo Congressuale Forense on the state of paradigms for the use of ‘artificial intelligence’ technologies in the field of the protection of rights and justice (and in part to so-called ‘legaltech’).

The Report is based on the analysis of 6200 doctrinal texts and international Case Studies, mainly drawn from the Anglo-Saxon language literature, referring to a time span that includes the last 5 years.

The texts were analysed with the support of the hybrid Artificial Intelligence system applied to language developed and kindly made available by our friends at

The data are certainly of interest and however ‘cold’ the Report’s presentation may be, they speak for themselves in terms of sectors, technologies and orders of issues raised.

The idea behind the Report was to circumscribe the information pertaining to the technological paradigms that are emerging for a sector that lives and works on semantic capital. In the knowledge that the identification of the prevailing technological paradigms is the foundation for any discussion on the problems and rules that will have to be addressed in the phase of reflection on the principles that jurists (magistrates lawyers and academics), legislators, technicians, sociologists and philosophers will have to sustain in exponentially shorter timeframes with each passing day.
