Speaking at the 12th anniversary celebrations of ‘Truth Labs’, in Hyderabad on Friday, Justice Jasti Chelameswar said that science and technology should be used to solve cases, while adding that the complications that arise from use of science should also be managed.

“Laws must be designed to meet the complications that arise from use of science and technology, which will have an interface especially in criminal cases.

“Technology creates a lot of complications and its implications are seen in law and society. Necessarily, the law must be designed to meet these complications.” He further said that there is a constant need to synchronise the development of architecture of law, the former judge said.

“There should be an interaction between stakeholders, including lawmakers, science experts, philosophers, etc, on how to create an architecture which can change with the society’s needs,” he opined while adding that artificial intelligence and biotechnology will change the world in the next few years, to an extent that one cannot imagine.
