World’s first ‘robot lawyer’ will be defending a human in court next month

A ‘robot lawyer’ is all set to defend a speeding ticket on its first day in court next month.

In February, an Artificial Intelligence (AI) developed by DoNotPay will advise a defendant during an entire court case, likely making it the first-ever case defended by an AI.

The AI will run on a smartphone, listening in to the proceedings of the courtroom before instructing the defendant on what to say via an earpiece as reported by the New Scientist.
