The First European Ethical Charter on the use of artificial intelligence in judicial systems has adopted by the Council of Europe
The European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) of the Council of Europe has adopted the first European text setting out ethical principles relating to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in judicial systems.
