We might remember 2023 as the year of the Robot Lawyer.

Next month, An AI-based ‘lawyer’ program will be used in an actual U.S. court case.

The app runs on a smartphone and offers legal advice to the defendant via an earpiece, including suggestions on what to say during their hearing.

The ‘robot lawyer’ was developed by DoNotPay, which previously developed AI-based apps used to challenge parking tickets.

What kind of applications would you trust an AI to handle?  Would you go to court with a robot lawyer?
