Could Robots Replace Jurors? – Law Blog – WSJ

     Although this article seems to discount the possibility, I find the fact that there are some people willing to entertain the idea disturbing. Can artificial intelligence replace jurors? I believe that this topic transcends mere speculation and enters the area of a debate about individual rights.
     Can an algorithm legitimately be developed to judge an individual human being? Would it even be desirable? I do not think that there is anyone who would honestly be willing to be judged by anything less than a jury of their peers. The only reasons I can attribute to the search for a possible AI jury would be either economic or consistency, but how can economy of action or consistent results supersede justice in an infinitely variable world?
     Something to think about.
