Artificial intelligence - quantifying legal risk

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 16/05/2019

Divorce. Car accidents. Unfair competition. Wrongful dismissal. Many disputes result in one party being forced to pay a sum of money. An indicative scale is sometimes used to calculate the totals to be paid, something magistrates draw upon when it comes to reaching a ruling. In practice, however, there is often a discrepancy between this figure and the total that is actually paid, reflecting the particularities of each individual case that judges must take into account. As a result, it can be difficult to estimate the total amount of compensation in advance.
