Artificial Intelligence Applications in Corrections

This technology brief is the fourth in a four-part series that examines artificial intelligence (AI) applications in the criminal justice system. This brief highlights applications currently in use in corrections, including institutional corrections (jails and prisons) and community corrections (probation and parole). This brief introduces frameworks for evaluating AI applications, and summarizes critical risks to consider when deploying AI systems. Other briefs in this series provide a high-level overview of AI within the criminal justice system and AI topics related to law enforcement and the criminal courts system.
