The Registrar General of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court- Mr. Jawad Ahmed issued an order on 12-10-2020 to constitute an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Committee in the High Court of J & K.
The committee shall consist of a Chairperson- Justice Rajesh Bindal and a member- Justice Puneet Gupta.
The committee has been constituted to look into the matters of:
- Use of Al Language Technology in Translation of Judicial Documents.
- Use of Al in Process Automation on the Administrative Side.
- Exploring potential of use of Al in Legal Research Assistance on Judicial Side
- Exploring potential usage of AT in other Judicial avenues.
The order further directed the CPC e-courts and the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir to assist the AI Committee and coordinate with the Member-Convenor of the Artificial Intelligence Committee of the Supreme Court of India.
Apparently, an AI committee plays a crucial role in assisting the Judiciary in the legal aspects like granting of parole, granting bail, determining the appropriate sentence of a convict, etc. thus helping in expediting the judicial process.
