Prof. Mohamed Safi, Dean of the Faculty of Law and Chairman of the session, explained the concept of artificial intelligence as a type of new technology that can be used in a good or bad way, and this is linked to the emergence of some new applications that rely on huge data, and this data includes personal data, so data protection must be activated. He must stress the existence of a regulatory framework, provided that there are no restrictions on the operation of the technology itself, because this has another aspect that may limit creativity. Therefore, restrictions must be imposed on society itself through laws that protect it in general. The crimes committed must have a penalty for the act itself, such as the penalty for the crime of fraud, is applied, regardless of the method of committing the crime, whether using artificial intelligence or without it.

He pointed to the criminal crimes that occur through the use of artificial intelligence applications such as robots, self-driving cars, and drones, while most of us interact with artificial intelligence systems on a daily basis, as machines and computers affect our personal and professional lives, applications of artificial intelligence technology are not only related to our public and daily lives.

Criminal justice aims to protect society and achieve justice by tackling crimes and punishing the guilty. This process includes procedures for investigation, arrest, trial, conviction and execution of punishments, and preserves the rights of individuals and ensures that they are not violated in the context of criminal processes.
