AI lawyer gets its day in court

Will help the defendant 

A programme trained with the help of artificial intelligence is set to help a defendant contest his case in a US court next month.

According to New Scientist report, the progamme will not address the court but will act as a legal advisor smartphone and will supply appropriate responses through an earpiece to the defendant.

In a new development, a company, DoNotPay, which has been training AI, has now claimed that its programme will be able to defend a speeding case that is due to be heard in a U.S. court in February 2023. Identities of the individual and the court remain under wraps.

Since this is the AI's first case, DoNotPay is ready to take on the burden of punishment if the AI's advice does not help the client. Since it is a speeding ticket, DoNotPay will pay for the speeding ticket. If it wins though, it will have a massive victory to its credit.

CEO Joshua Browder told New Scientist that it had found a court where listening via an earpiece was within the rules, even though it might not be in the spirit of the rules.
