(Xinhua) Updated : 2019-06-28

BEIJING - The Beijing Internet court on June 27 launched an online litigation service center, which includes an AI judge claimed to be "the first of its kind in the world."

The AI judge, based on intelligent synthesizing technologies of speech and image, will help the court's judges complete repetitive basic work, including litigation reception, and thus enables professional practitioners to focus on judicial trials.

The judge has a female image with a voice, facial expressions and actions based on a real person. It can also provide users with litigation guidance in real time, helping users to use the online litigation platform.

The innovation is expected to improve the quality and efficiency of judicial work. As technology advances, the AI judge is more likely to act as assistants, able to conduct intelligent question-and-answer communications with users based on the data of professional knowledge and the guidance from real judges.
