New opportunities, new challenges

This Symposium will explore the issues which are facing us now at the intersection of AI and the Courts of Australia. Experts in this difficult and challenging area will explore these questions and more:

  1. What do judges need to know about Artificial Intelligence and when do they need to know it?
  2. How does (and how will) the profession use AI and what do judges need to know about that?
  3. How is AI being used in the courts? How will it be used – both from the administrative side of the court and the judicial side?
  4. Can AI be accountable? Can it be regulated? How will it be used in trials? How will the use of AI by self-represented litigants affect the courts?  Will AI hinder justice by the creation of false evidence, deep fakes and the like? How can algorithmic bias be countered?

Speakers at the Symposium will include:

  • Professor Lyria Bennett Moses, University of New South Wales
  • Professor Tania Sourdin, University of Newcastle, School of Law and Justice
  • Ms Caroline Ryan, Partner, Allens Linklaters
  • Mr Ben Kremer SC
  • Mr Matthew Purcell, Generative AI AWS
  • Dr Kaye Ballantyne, Chief Forensic Scientist, Victoria Police
  • Dr Aditya Joshi, UNSW
  • Dr Richard Frank, International CyberCrime Research Centre, Simon Fraser University, Canada
  • Professor Juliano Maranhão, Cidade University, São Paulo
  • Professor Aleš Završnik, Institute of Criminology at the Faculty of Law, Ljubljana, Slovenia
