Machine learning is a field of artificial intelligence that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed, posing the problem of using the outputs of deep learning software as evidence in a judicial process. Focusing on Civil Procedure Law, this article aims to reflect on this problem, from the point of view of the admissibility and weight of such an evidence, giving close attention to the north-American experience, where the problem of the use of scientific and technic evidence has been largely discussed.
