An artificial intelligence (AI) bot developed by DoNotPay will defend a human in court for the first time next month. The AI bot, referred to as “the world’s first robot lawyer,” will assist a defendant in fighting a traffic ticket in court. It will run on the defendant’s smartphone and provide guidance through an earpiece as it listens to court arguments in real time. The defendant will only speak the words instructed by the AI in court. DoNotPay has not disclosed the location or the defendant’s name.

This marks a significant milestone in the use of AI in the legal field, as it has previously only been utilized for tasks such as document review and legal research. While there are concerns about the potential for bias and job replacement with the use of AI in the legal system, it could also improve efficiency and access to justice for those who may not be able to afford legal representation.

DoNotPay founder and CEO Joshua Browder stated that it took a long time to train the AI legal assistant to stick to the truth and not twist facts or be manipulative. The AI has been designed to analyze the arguments being made in court before advising the defendant on how to proceed. In the event that the case is lost, DoNotPay has agreed to cover any fines.

The outcome of this case will be closely watched as it could have a significant impact on the future use of AI in the legal industry. It will be interesting to see how the AI performs in a legal setting and if it is able to successfully defend the human defendant.
