The world’s first robot lawyer will go to court

TO COURT: Artificial intelligence will now be used in court.

For the first time, robotic lawyers with artificial intelligence (AI) will defend a case in court.

In February, court hearings against people who drove too fast began.

based on IFL Science and The New Scientist, the world’s first lawyer robot will tell the accused what to say for his defense. Messages must be sent via phone and headphones. The case is described as a test case for the company that has developed the lawyer robot, DoNotPay.

If the defendant says everything the robot asked him to say, and the person still loses the case, the company will pay the penalty imposed.

DoNotPay started in 2015 as a chatbot to help people avoid fees and fines. On their website, they advertise that the world’s first robotic lawyer can help you take on a big corporation, fight against bureaucracy, or sue someone – with just the push of a button.

based on New Scientist the company claims its AI chatbot has helped people in 3 million cases in the UK and US. But this is the first time an artificial intelligence has turned into a robotic lawyer in a courtroom. The trial will take place in the United States, but the exact location is being kept secret for two reasons:

One is to protect the accused who must defend himself. And another because in both the US and many other countries it is forbidden to use the telephone and the internet inside courtrooms, he wrote Gizmondo.

When asked by Gizmondo to the head of DoNotPay, Joshua Bowder, if the judges and others present in court would have known that robotic lawyers were being tested, he replied

– Of course not.

Bowder also unveiled the offer via Twitter last week:

He promised a million dollars (about ten million kroner) to a lawyer who would lead the case to the US Supreme Court with plugs in his ears, and just repeated what the robot lawyer had said.
