In a significant address, Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud emphasized the potential risks associated with the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools, particularly in the legal profession. CJI Chandrachud raised concerns about bias and indirect discrimination inherent in AI systems, citing the example of facial recognition technology (FRT) as a prime example of high-risk AI due to its intrusive nature and potential for misuse.

Speaking at the 2-day conference on Technology and Judicial Dialogue held at the Supreme Court of India in collaboration with the Singapore Supreme Court, CJI Chandrachud underscored the ethical, legal, and practical considerations surrounding the integration of AI in court proceedings. He acknowledged the opportunities and challenges presented by AI in adjudication, emphasizing the need for nuanced deliberation.

Drawing parallels with the Oscar-nominated movie “Ex Machina,” CJI Chandrachud highlighted the thought-provoking questions raised by AI development, including consciousness, morality, and the ethical implications of creating sentient beings. He cautioned against the existential challenges posed by AI and called for caution in its integration into the legal domain to ensure that such tools enhance rather than undermine the pursuit of justice.

CJI Chandrachud emphasized the inevitability of technological advancement and its potential to transform professions, including law, by expediting and streamlining justice delivery. He called for collaboration and international cooperation to promote the responsible and ethical use of AI technologies, fostering inclusivity, innovation, and progress.
