“Technology is anything that wasn’t around when you were born.”1
In some ways, artificial intelligence can never live up to its reputation. AI has been portrayed on the big screen as limitless in its potential, dangerous in its application, and incomprehensible to its audience. High stakes are always involved. Sometimes AI lends a supporting hand, while other times it leads to dystopian futures and humanity’s replacement—usually by cyborgs or robots.2 The relationship between AI and the courts is currently much less dramatic, yet nonetheless represents an area filled with incredible possibilities. It is essential that judges understand the technology being implemented and the pitfalls to avoid.
