A “robot-lawyer” will defend an accused in court

A virtual legal adviser will give his recommendations to the person accused of speeding, thanks to a headset.

The American company DoNotPay has designed an artificial intelligence (AI) capable of advising a defendant in court without the need for a lawyer.

According to New Scientist magazine, the virtual legal adviser will give his recommendations to the person accused of speeding through a headset. During all court proceedings, the AI ​​will operate using a smart phone which will listen to all speeches and then give instructions.

The hearing which will take place in February in the United States is considered a test by the company, which has already announced that it will pay the defendant's fine if it were to be imposed.

The device would be illegal in many countries, but its inventor, Joshua Browder, hopes to find ways to make his invention tolerated in some cases.
