Within the framework of the Italian Presidency of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and in collaboration with the University of Pisa, the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) organises on the 17th and 18th of March 2022 a joint meeting between its Working Groups on Quality of Justice (CEPEJ-GT-QUAL) and on Cyberjustice and Artificial Intelligence (CEPEJ-GT-CYBERJUST).

One main point of the event, held inside Pisa University’s Aula Magna, will be to propose the creation of a Resource Center on Artificial intelligence and Cyberjustice, a central database able to collect and provide documents, materials, software, tools and practices useful to create a common place where to exchange information to bring forward the digital transformation and the implementation of the Artificial Intelligence’s applications to the judicial system. This meeting will also be the occasion to define the concrete work of the CEPEJ in these topical aspects for the European judicial systems.

Dr. Ramin Garagurbanli (Azerbaijan), President of the CEPEJ, Dr. Raffaele Piccirillo, Chief of Cabinet of the Minister of Justice and Dr. Paolo Mancarella, Rector of the University of Pisa will open the meeting on the 17th.

Engineer Vincenzo De Lisi, General Director of the DGSIA at the Minister of Justice and Dr Paolo Ferragina, Vice-rector in ICT of Pisa University, will present the future possibilities of co-operation within the framework of the CEPEJ.

On the 18th of March, the two working groups of the CEPEJ will meet separately to discuss about various topics regarding the implementation of the CEPEJ European Ethical Charter on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in judicial systems and their environment. Moreover, they will address the recent creation of the CEPEJ European Cyberjustice Network and various other topics like the accessibility to justice for vulnerable groups or development of e-auctions.

“It is an honour and a great opportunity for the University to be able to host such an event which strengthens our cooperation with the Tribunal of Pisa, a collaboration which began in 2020 with an Agreement Protocol. These meetings enable us to participate to the more and more current debate on the application of new technologies to the judicial system – comments Paolo Mancarella, Rector of the athenaeum – The University of Pisa is at the forefront both in terms of Data science and Artificial Intelligence studies and I believe this institution can contribute extensively to this ongoing transformation, following the path already laid-out by projects such as the ones with the Superior School of Judiciary, developed with the already-mentioned collaboration with the Tribunal, strongly wanted by its President Maria Giuliana Civinini, whom I kindly thank”.

“Since its creation in 2002 the CEPEJ has given an incredible contribution to the improvement of the quality of justice following common European standards, based on the principle of the rule of law and of the human rights protection – states the President of the Tribunal Maria Giuliana Civinini – It is also of great importance the commitment of the CEPEJ in the field of new technologies and Artificial intelligence, events like this have the precise aim to bring forward this project aimed at combining law and technology. Moreover, we are thankful for the support to this initiative given by the University of Pisa, an institution with which the Tribunal has a long-lasting collaboration and from whose partnership can be developed many other projects like this one”.

    Thank you for this report. It is really important to ensure common ground for both cyber justice and artificial intelligence. At the same time, cyber security is a very current topic and an extremely important part of our lives. Cyber security is essential if we want to delegate responsibility for many things to the AI.

  2. Anastasia Zerva says:

    Dear Eliska,
    Thank you very much for your comment.
    Indeed, it is a very important issue concerning cybersecurity and artificial intelligence, issues that we are often called upon to deal with. Moreover, it is significant to aducate and raise the awareness of all the citizens on the subject of cybersecurity, in order to be alert and aware as well as respond immediately to any such condition.
    Thanks once again for the discussion!
