To increase the success rate and speed of criminal case adjudication, the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department has created a smart programme to monitor cases in the criminal courts using machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI).

To integrate electronic judgments for crimes that are resolved by conciliation, waiver, or statute of limitations expiration, ADJD is modernising the programme.

It is "a paradigm shift," according to Counselor Youssef Saeed Al Abri, Undersecretary of the ADJD, for the judicial system in the emirate of Abu Dhabi to use AI techniques to monitor all criminal court work. This is in line with the vision of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Presidential Court, and Head of the Judicial Department in Abu Dhabi, to create futuristic, intelligent courts that offer top-notch services.

 In light of the use of the remote litigation system and the implementation of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department's strategic plan for the years 2021–2023, Al Abri stated that this action is consistent with the digital transformation of judicial and legal services.

The president of the Abu Dhabi Criminal Court, Counselor Mansour Al Marzouqi, stated that the uses of machine learning currently employed in the criminal courts are manifested in the immediate follow-up of all judicial divisions' work by providing accurate statistics of the completed cases, the ongoing cases, the follow-up of those in custody in pending cases, accomplishment rate, and adjourned cases, which provide obvious indications to ensure that immediate action is taken.

Tasks Covered

He continued, "The smart programme, enhanced with artificial intelligence techniques, also allows the possibility of describing the judgement, whether in person or absentia, in electronic form, while allowing the transfer of significant data to the draught judgement, like the names of the accused and a description of the charges against the accused in the cases before the Criminal Court."
