Artificial intelligence has grown leaps and bounds, but maybe this is a step too far?
According to "New Scientist", an AI robot will defend a person in court for the first time ever.
The AI was developed by a company called DoNotPay and would have the robo-lawyer listen in on court proceedings and advise its client through an earpiece.
The bot was initially designed to fight parking tickets, but has now expanded into other services including facilitating divorce certificates, dealing with college fee waivers, etc.
The first court trial with the AI is set to be held in February, with details being protected by the app.
