A judge in India has made history by seeking the expertise of OpenAI’s ChatGPT to decide on bail in a murder trial. The revolutionary decision was made during the trial of Jaswinder Singh, who was charged with assaulting and killing a woman in 2020.
Left at a loss for how to handle the situation, Judge Anoop Chitkara sought counsel from GPT-4, ChatGPT’s latest update that “exhibits human-level performance on various professional and academic benchmarks.” The cybernetic judicial expert provided insight into the jurisprudence on bail when the assailant assaulted with cruelty, concluding that the presumption of innocence is a fundamental principle of the justice system.
Armed with the Chat-Lawyer’s legal expertise, Chitkara ultimately rejected the defendant’s bail bid on the grounds that they did act cruelly before the victim died.
This marks a first for the Indian justice system, which is notoriously backlogged with nearly 6 million pending cases in high courts across the nation. The decision also underscores the growing role of artificial intelligence in various sectors of human life, including the legal system.
