Use of ICTs and Artificial Intelligence to Overcome Judicial Trial Delays in Pakistani Courts
The employment of information and communication technologies (ICT) and artificial intelligence (AI) backed software tools in the judicial practice has drawn a lot of interest due to its performance in everyday tasks including voice recognition and text processing etc. AI software have, however, revealed crucial, precondition, procedural, and result flaws during the application procedure, posing hazards to ethics. This research paper draws a comparison of AI software applications which are being practiced in United Kingdom, Australia, India and Pakistan. The software comprised ReadyTech’s caseHQ, LIMBS, Case Flow Management System (CFMS). The available data was reviewed qualitatively based upon the software characteristics and needs of the legal systems of the relevant countries. The study found that Pakistan is way behind in using this technology to support its legal system as compared to UK, Australia and India. The study recommends smart use of AI technology to help reform the judicial system especially for speedy trial.
