Its characteristics are as follows: firstly, with the judicial work demand as the function design guidance, the platform not only meets the requirements of judges and lawyers in terms of cases, rules, and knowledge content, but also lets ordinary people without professional knowledge sufficiently obtain help by utilizing the platform through natural language processing technology.
