Supreme Court Chief: Caution urged for AI’s role in elections!


  • Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has cautioned against the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in legal decision-making, emphasizing the importance of caution and humility when embracing new technologies in the courts.
  • Roberts stated that while AI has the potential to increase access to information, it also poses risks to privacy and dehumanizing the law.
  • His year-end report did not address current controversies surrounding the court, such as calls for greater transparency and ethics reform.
  • The Supreme Court is expected to play a significant role in shaping election-related disputes in 2024, including whether former President Donald Trump can appear on primary and general election ballots and whether his role in election interference and the Capitol riots would disqualify him from seeking re-election.
  • The court will also address other key issues in the coming months, including abortion, executive power, social media regulation, and gun rights, among others.
