This seminar was jointly organised with the Alan Turing Institute and the Sentencing Academy and received funding from the Northumbria Centre for Evidence and Criminal Justice Studies.

The seminar explored the current and proposed future uses of AI in sentencing and the management of offenders. The event presented different perspectives on the use of AI in this context and aimed to raise awareness of, and provoke engagement with, the ongoing debates in this area.

There were two sessions addressing different themes relating to AI in sentencing. The first session discussed the use of AI in sentencing from a technical perspective, including speakers from the Alan Turing Institute, Northumbria University and the Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation. The second session explored the issues for practice arising from the use of AI in sentencing and included speakers from legal practice and the Sentencing Academy.

The event was fully booked and attended by people who could bring a range of perspectives to the discussion, including academics, policymakers, practitioners and computer scientists. A report of the event is being prepared and will be published soon.
