The purpose of this study is to characterize the concept and essence of artificial intelligence (AI) currently used in jurisprudence and to identify the most probable risks and threats that the introduction of such systems into the legal environment may entail. This paper provides a comparative legal analysis of doctrinal definitions of "artificial intelligence" formulated by Russian and foreign scientists and lawyers, and describes the main forms of AI used in the legal sphere (robots, smart contracts, online courts). The author puts forward his position regarding the potential risks and threats of applying these technologies as well as possible ways of solving the problem of lack of a unified application of AI in the legal sphere.


The intensive development of high technology has become one of the main characteristics of the modern era. The application of technical and technological innovations in various spheres of social life has significantly changed the environment in which specific systems operate, resulting in widespread and radical revisions of professional competencies as well as the conditions of work performance by workers and employees of various categories. The area of public affairs that deals with legal issues in all their diversity should not be left unaffected by these trends. The application of the latest information technology in all branches of law improves procedural requirements, facilitates significant labor savings by all participants in the process, enables information retrieval and systematization, ensures quicker decision-making by officials, etc.

Informatization research is now close to resolving a groundbreaking research challenge: the development of high-level artificial intelligence. The practical solutions in this area are showing significant progress, and there is also the potential for new technologies to be applied to a range of tasks. One example of this is the system that is already in place in criminal proceedings in various states. For example, the Arnold Foundation algorithm, which is implemented in 21 states of USA, uses 1.5 million
