With the help of artificial intelligence, DoNotPay's first robot lawyer will defend speeding tickets in court

It has recently been demonstrated that artificial intelligence is capable of translating text, creating art, and even writing essays.

As a result, they are prepared to present their case in court on your behalf.

Defendants in two speeding cases will receive instructions from their AI as they respond to their assigned judges, according to DoNotPay, which calls itself "the world's first robot lawyer."

According to CEO and founder Joshua Browder, law is almost like a combination of code and language, which makes it the perfect use case for artificial intelligence, according to USA TODAY. According to me, GPT and large language model technology have the greatest potential in this regard."

DoNotPay: How does it work?

According to New Scientist, DoNotPay plans to use Bluetooth-enabled earphones with the AI whispering instructions on what to say to the defendants.

There will be two defendants arguing their cases: one in person and one via Zoom. Additionally, DoNotPay is considering taking on a third eviction case.

According to Browder, this is the first time that artificial intelligence will be used in a courtroom. Due to the possibility of interference from state bars, DoNotPay is keeping the exact dates and locations of the hearings under wraps.

According to the American Bar Association, roughly 80% of low-income individuals cannot afford legal assistance, so Browder hopes his experiment will loosen courtroom rules prohibiting the use of artificial intelligence in courtrooms.

The technology of artificial intelligence is so powerful. People deserve to be able to utilize it for their own benefit," Browder told USA TODAY.

DoNotPay - what is it?

The DoNotPay website, which has been in operation since 2015, offers templates that are designed to assist people in appealing parking tickets or requesting refunds from airlines. Using GPT technology, it has also created a bot that can negotiate bills with companies such as Comcast.

Are there any risks associated with the practice of AI law?

The defendants will be compensated for participating in the experiment, as Browder acknowledges the risks involved with being the first to use AI in court. However, DoNotPay accepted to cover any fines and the defendants will be satisfied for taking part in the experiment.

Moreover, DoNotPay has taken steps to ensure that its artificial intelligence does not exaggerate facts or be "too polite" by responding to everything the judge says - including rhetorical statements.

It is expected that the AI will file its first court case in February, but there may be more to follow. Browder stated on Twitter that DoNotPay would offer anyone with an upcoming case in the United States Supreme Court $1 million in exchange for wearing AirPods and allowing the robot lawyer to represent them.
