Artificial intelligence predicting US Supreme Court decisions

Algorithm could reveal best strategies for plaintiffs. Several other studies have guessed at justices’ behavior with algorithms. A 2011 project, for example, used the votes of any eight justices from 1953 to 2004 to predict the vote of the ninth in those same cases, with 83% accuracy. Future extensions of the algorithm could include the full text of oral arguments or even expert predictions.
