#ABKLaw BLOG by Michael Jaccarino: Would you let an AI robot handle your criminal defense?


Would you let an AI ROBOT handle your criminal defense?

A robot is about to defend an accused person in court. A person who is charged with a crime.

If true, this artificial intelligence robot will be the first ever to advise someone in a court of law. The AI, which will physically be located in the defendant’s phone, will listen in on the court proceedings, and then advise the defendant through an earpiece. 

“The World’s First Robot Lawyer,” as it is called, was initially designed to battle parking tickets, but has been greatly expanded.

The first AI court trial is supposed to be held in February, with details like specific dates and locations being protected by the app which markets it. 

While an AI robot lawyer is definitely an experiment and creates a degree of risk for the defendant, it opens some interesting doors for the future of artificial intelligence.  Indeed, advances in technology have assisted human lawyers and changed how trials are conducted and how discovery is produced and analyzed.  Yet, at this point, choosing a robot to represent you at trial over an effective litigator, who is experienced in the complexities of a trial and the human condition, is not recommended.
