Abstract

For the past 2 decades the use of artificial intelligence to augment human efforts has become a growing field. In that respect artificial intelligence involves such aspects like rule-based reasoning, neural networks, biometrics as well as case based reasoning just to name but a few. Applications of these technologies have been in all sectors of industry and the economy including the judicial sector as well. In the judiciary sector artificial intelligence has been used to help lawyers build cases, verify case evidence, create a favorable atmosphere for the victim to interact fearlessly with the jury among some of the most important uses. This thesis explores the use of case based reasoning in the judiciary field, whereby an e-court system was designed to help in augmenting the magistrate’s efforts during the litigation process on rape cases using stare decisis. The need for an ecourt system comes as a measure to address the challenges currently looming the Zimbabwean regional courts which includes the speculation of bias, inconsistences, as well as the long time it takes during the litigation procedure. In testing the applicability of case based reasoning on stare decisis on rape cases the researcher exposed the system to experts in the judiciary field and their views on the system were captured and analyzed there by drawing some inference on whether the use of case based reasoning is a useful technique when handling rape cases. More so the e-court system was also created as a mechanism to help in safe case documentation storage and easy case documentation retrieval.
