After introducing the concept and the methods of artificial intelligence, we shall consider the prospects of machine learning technologies, as applied to big data. We shall discuss the opportunities and risks of these technological developments. In particular we shall consider how AI on the one hand further expands the prevailing powers of big companies and governments, but on the other hand, can also support individuals and their organisations. AI can indeed strengthen the countervailing powers of civil society, so as to facilitate in particular the enforcement of the law. As an example, we shall present the Claudette project, which uses AI techniques to identify unfair and unlawful content in online contracts and privacy policies.
