BEIJING - China's top procuratorate has said the country's prosecutors will introduce more technology, including big data and artificial intelligence, during investigations.

The application is intended to promote justice, said the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP).

The SPP said more modern technology will also be used in pre-court preparation, court trials and back office support.

The digital assistance will provide more accuracy and objectivity to prosecutors nationwide, said the SPP.

The SPP also promised to develop more translation devices, especially for Tibetan, Uygur and Mongolian languages, stressing the importance of translation in front-line work.
