AI technology has infiltrated every fabric of society and now AI will be used in court.
A robot lawyer powered by AI technology will help fight ticketing traffic offenders next month.
The bot was created by tech startup DoNotPay.
According to its website, DoNotPay’s goal is to “use artificial intelligence to help consumers fight back against big firms and beat parking tickets, appeal bank charges and sue robocallers”.
Court location and names of traffic offenders are withheld for security reasons.

So, how does it work?
According to the New York Post, the AI ”runs on a smartphone and listens to court arguments in real time before telling the defendant what to say through headphones.”
If the AI robot fails to let the traffic offender off the hook, then DoNotPay pays all the fines.

DoNotPay’s new technology faces many legal hurdles because many courtrooms do not allow non-hearing assistive Bluetooth devices inside the courtroom.
Also, in most courtrooms in the United States, all parties must consent to being recorded inside the courtroom.
