In this event, we will discuss Prof Reuben Binns' (University of Oxford, Department of Computer Science) recent work which compares human-driven and machine-driven legal judgments.

Abstract

Are there certain desirable properties from text-driven law, which have parallels in data-driven law? As a preliminary exercise, this article explores a range of analogies and disanalogies between text-driven normativity and its data-driven counterparts. Ultimately, the conclusion is that the analogies are weaker than the disanalogies. But the hope is that, in the process of drawing them, we learn something more about the comparison between text and data-driven normativities and the (im?)possibility of data-driven law.
