From robot surgeons to Siri, AI is interwoven and invisible in our lives. But could (or should) AI replace lawyers and judges? In a talk originally developed for the Cambridge Festival of Ideas and BBC Radio 4, Dr. Christopher Markou (Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge) asks: even if this is possible, what would it mean for democracy and the rule of law? Drawing upon family stories of survival during the Holocaust, Christopher will discuss how these experiences influence his research and public engagement work, and the role of law in mitigating the harmful and potentially dehumanising effects of science and technology.
