Some technological developments are meteoric, constantly reshaping our behavior and our relationship with the world, with others and therefore with the law. When these developments affect criminal law, we always try to anticipate and understand them, so as not to be taken by surprise. This is particularly true of the current upheavals linked to the development of artificial intelligence.

Between February 6 and 9, 2023, the Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Justice and Human Rightsin collaboration with the Supreme Judicial Council of Qatar and theUNESCOorganized a specialized training seminar at its headquarters in Siracusa (Italy) on the theme of “Artificial intelligence, criminal justice and human rights“.

The seminar brought together judges from criminal courts, criminal lawyers and artificial intelligence experts from the Euro-Mediterranean region, who addressed a wide range of topics relating to the criminal issues raised by artificial intelligence.

In this context, Ludovic Tirelli has given three courses on the criminal law aspects (procedure and substantive law) of artificial intelligence. The themes of his lectures were as follows:

  • Applications of artificial intelligence in criminal proceedings
  • Applications of artificial intelligence in financial investigations
  • Selected issues of criminal liability for offenses committed by or through artificial intelligences .

Our expert, Prof. Olivier Beaudet-Labrecque, was also present and spoke about Opportunities and risks for technology-enabled criminal justice systems .

Penalex Avocats SA would once again like to thank the Siracusa Institute for the confidence it has shown in entrusting us with the task of training and raising awareness among criminal law practitioners of the implications and challenges posed by these technological developments for fair trial and human rights.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information on the challenges of artificial intelligence in criminal law.
