CLAUDETTE: an automated detector of potentially unfair clauses in online terms of service

Artificial Intelligence and Law 27 (2):117-139 (2019)

We present an experimental study where machine learning is employed to automatically detect such potentially unfair clauses. Results show that the proposed system could provide a valuable tool for lawyers and consumers alike.
