firstRobotLawyer was developed by a 19-year-old to handle parking ticket appeal cases. It has been a huge success since its launch last fall.
The teenager is British programmer Joshua Browder (Joshua Browder). In September last year, he launched a beta version of the robo-lawyer in London, England. That month, 3,000 people used the robo-lawyer to help them appeal parking tickets. By February, it had processed parking ticket appeals totaling $3 million.
In April, Browder launched the Robot in New York, USA. To date, the Robot has processed a total of 250,000 parking ticket appeals in London and New York, of which 160,000 have been won, a success rate of 64%.
This robo-lawyer proves that robots can not only help people with simple tasks like ordering food, but they can also help people with some complex problems.
Its workflow is as follows: first log in to the DoNotPay artificial intelligence application and create an account. The chatbot will then use the account to ask you questions about parking violations, such as whether there is evidence that you did not park illegally. If your answers prove that you can file an appeal, the bot will help you file an appeal request automatically.
Now, many companies are investing in robots, the most famous of which is the social network Facebook. In April, the tech giant launched a series of Messenger bots. They can help with a variety of simple tasks, such as ordering flowers or providing weather forecasts. But, like many users, Browder was disappointed with the bots.
“I’ve tried almost every bot and I’ve been disappointed. In fact, filling out a web form to order flowers is faster than a bot,” Browder said. “But these bots should have the potential to really help people.”
Browder also plans to launch a robo-lawyer in Seattle this fall. But he’s also poised to develop robots that can help people in other ways.
Currently, he is developing a robot that he hopes will help Syrian refugees apply for asylum. Working with IBM’s Watson supercomputer, he’s trying to make the robot understand Arabic and fill out legal documents in English.
In addition, Browder is developing a robot to help people with AIDS figure out their legal rights after their condition is publicized. (Music)
