Smart dispute resolution: Artificial intelligence to reduce litigation




Inteligência artificial, Smart Dispute Resolution, Redução de litigiosidade, Método comparativo, Processo Civil


Artificial intelligence, despite still being a developing technology, can be considered an inevitability in law, as it is in any other field. Described in Germany as part of a 4th Industrial Revolution, it confirms no battle against evolution would be fruitful. Nevertheless, given AI is a certainty in the future of law, the applications should be debated. The objective here is to exam applications of AI in Law in Brazil and in the United States of America, and to evaluate its use to resolve conflicts outside the Judicial System, instead of through Justice. With the assistance of the comparative and deductive methods and the Cartesian doubt to process the data, the main conclusion is that AI is more useful for simple and repetitive litigation, and it could deliver benefits through dispute resolution outside the Judicial System, with smart technologies, resulting on a Smart Dispute Resolution alternative.
