SUPACE-Supreme Court Portal for Assistance in Court's Efficiency

SUPACE-Supreme Court Portal for Assistance in Court's Efficiency

CONTEXT:

  • The Supreme Court unveiled its Artificial Intelligence (AI) portal SUPACE.

KEY DETAILS:

  • Purpose: It is designed to make research easier for judges, thereby easing their workload.

  • A pet project of Chief Justice of India S A Bobde, the Supreme Court Portal for Assistance in Court’s Efficiency (SUPACE) is a tool that

    • Collects relevant facts and laws and

    • Makes them available to a judge.

  • CJI Bobde said:

    • Though some interpret AI as automated decision making,

    • the Supreme Court’s system is not designed to take decisions,

    • but only to process facts and to make them available to judges looking for an input for a decision.

  • No spill over to decision making: “This is where we are going to stop using it – after it has given all the information and analyzed all the examples,” Bobde said, adding “We are not going to let it spill over to decision making”.
