An artificial-intelligence lawyer chatbot has successfully contested 160,000 parking tickets across London and New York for free, showing that chatbots can actually be useful.
Dubbed as “the world’s first robot lawyer” by its 19-year-old creator, London-born second-year Stanford University student Joshua Browder, DoNotPay helps users contest parking tickets in an easy to use chat-like interface.
“I think the people getting parking tickets are the most vulnerable in
society. These people aren’t looking to break the law. I think they’re
being exploited as a revenue source by the local government,” Browder told Venture Beat."
