ACT Autonomy through Cyberjustice Technologies
SubProject: SmartContracts and Regulatory Technologies
The Autonomy Through Cyberjustice Technologies (ACT) project is a research partnership that is unique in the field of artificial intelligence and cyberjustice. AJC is led by Professor Karim Benyekhlef, Director of the Cyberjustice Laboratory, and funded by a Partnership Grant issued by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
The purpose of the ACT partnership is to benefit justice stakeholders by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to prevent and resolve conflicts. This project has assembled a multidisciplinary and international team of 45 researchers and 42 partners representing a number of different stakeholders including the world’s leading research centres on the implementation and use of technologies in the field of justice (cyberjustice), litigants and legal professionals (justice stakeholders), as well as main users and purveyors of AI for justice in Canada.
