Abstract

Artificial intelligence (AI) technology offers new approaches for the prevention of judicial bias. Under appropriate institutional design, AI can reduce judges’ perception of extra-legal factors, and it can also explore judges' existing judicial biases based on their historical trial data and provide helpful alerts to them. In addition, AI can help judges conduct similar case matching to improve the consistency of different judicial decisions. Using AI judges in some scenarios can also reduce judicial bias. These approaches can increase judges' capability of reducing bias, and can also play a certain role in supervision
