‘Screening for Cartels’ in Public Procurement: Cheating at Solitaire to Sell Fool’s Gold?

Albert Sanchez-Graells asks ‘Screening for Cartels’ in Public Procurement: Cheating at Solitaire to Sell Fool’s Gold?

ABSTRACT: Given its ability to process very large volumes of information and to identify patterns that would generally escape human observation, artificial intelligence (AI) is expected to have very significant impacts in the field of law. In particular, there are high hopes for the application of AI to law enforcement. This is also the case in the area of competition law,1 where algorithms can be used to develop cartel screening tools and to boost the functionality of the behavioural screens that have been developing in recent years.
