DoNotPay Offers Lawyers $1 Million to Let Its AI Argue Before the Supreme Court in Their Place — The robot lawyer is powered by OpenAI’s GPT-3 API, the force behind the viral ChatGPT chatbot.
DoNotPay CEO Joshua Browder made a wild proposition to any lawyer slated to argue an upcoming case in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. Let DoNotPay’s AI lawyer, which is built on OpenAI’s viral GPT-3 API, argue the case before the court, Browder said, in exchange for $1 million. All the human lawyer would need to do is wear AirPods and repeat to the court what DoNotPay’s robot lawyer argues. ….
Browder said he had not heard from any lawyers interested in partnering up for Supreme Court cases but had received “very serious offers” from several lawyers involved in Federal and Appeals Court cases.
