or the first time in history, a program is set to defend a human in court with the help of artificial intelligence.
The software is set to challenge a speeding ticket in an actual court setting. The company said that if the AI’s advice is not helpful to the client, that they will pay the speeding ticket on behalf of the individual.
The case in question will take place in February, but no names or locations have been released.
The world’s first robot lawyer will run on the defendant’s phone. Reports say that the defendant will run the AI through an app called “DoNotPay.” The program will listen to court arguments in real life and then advise the defendant on what to say through an earpiece.
DoNotPay was founded in California in 2015 by Stanford University Computer Scientist Joshua Browder. The app was launched as a chatbot who’s purpose is to provide legal advice to people dealing with fines, late fees, and mainly parking tickets.
