Big data and Artificial Intelligence are leading to radical changes in decision-making processes. In this paper, we aim to provide an overview of the paradigm shift that has occurred in the field of AI and its implications for law. Presenting the Compas case, we highlight some critical aspects of the application of AI on judicial decisions. We conclude the work by reflecting on the radical transformations that are proceeding at great speed, underlining the main challenges that only through interdisciplinary approaches can be effectively addressed and proposing some of the fundamental principles of a new constitutional law of the cybernetic era.
