    Predicting which judges are likely to be biased could give them the opportunity to consider more carefully "

    This looks like important and groundbreaking work. Judges will no doubt argue however that the right of appeal to a higher court will be a better review process on their decisions.

    Not really software only does what we tell it or design it to do. People can alter a scale to favor them, they can do the same with anything else.

    Not quite. Modern algorithms sift through data and find correlations humans would never have sussed out. Sure, they do what we tell it to do but it finds things humans would not in a million years.

    You say that like its always going to be a good thing. Computers as you know never do what we want, only what we tell them, and depending on who is doing the talking and why they will.

    I never meant it to be always a good thing. ANY tech is ALWAYS a double edged sword. Like how TV in the beginning, like in the 1930's and 40's was touted as being this incredible instructional format that can teach children around the world and such but we all see what it is now 80 years on, a vehicle for advertisement and political bias.

    If AI gets as intelligent as humans, general intelligence, they WILL form their own agenda and we need to build defenses against that from day one.

    I have no doubt AI will reach at LEAST human intelligence in the next 100 years or sooner. Steven Hawking warned about that and he knew what he was talking about.

    I can see AI when they exceed human intelligence can manipulate markets to their advantage because of the internet being anonymous and so manipulation can happen unbeknownst to humans.
