AI-Powered Lawyer to Appear in US Court in February

It may sound unbelievable, but an Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered device will take up the position of a lawyer in a US court next month. It would be the first occasion in human history for AI to represent a party in court.

The defendant of a case will receive advice from this AI created by DoNotPay. As reported by New Scientist, this AI run on a smartphone will listen to the court proceedings and instruct the defendant on what to say via an earpiece.

DoNotPay, the company that developed the AI has not revealed the court’s location and the defendant’s name.

Joshua Browder, a computer scientist from Stanford University established the DoNotPay App in 2015 to help poor defendants. As per the company, the DoNotPay App is world’s first robot lawyer. The company claims that one can fight corporations, beat bureaucracy, and sue anyone at the press of a button through it.
