Joshua Browder has built one of the coolest products I have ever used, DoNotPay. What started as a way to fight parking tickets has grown into an app the waits in phone lines for you when calling companies, cancels trials for you automatically, and can get through legal matters that you don’t want to spend time on. Funded by Founders Fund, a16z, Index Ventures and more, this is a unicorn in the making. On this show, Joshua and I dive into:

What is DoNotPay?

Why did you start DoNotPay?

What are some of the use cases for DoNotPay?

How do you trick companies to treat DoNotPay users like gold?

How do you get the word out about DoNotPay?

How do you help your users find hidden money?

What does the future of DoNotPay look like in a decade?

What are the plans for future features for DoNotPay?

What movements in the tech world interest you as a technologist?

Is AI taking our jobs? Are you helping this move faster?

What advice would you have for someone wanting to start their own company?

And tons more!

You have probably received a parking ticket that you felt was unfair,   but instead of fighting it, you paid the expensive price to get rid of it quickly. Fighting a parking ticket sounds like it would be so time consuming that it is a better decision to just pay for it. When Joshua Browder was faced with this situation, his response was different. He decided there should be an automated solution to fighting parking tickets, and he made the user interface a chat bot.

It’s not obvious why a chat bot interface for fighting parking tickets makes sense, but in my discussion with Joshua, he explained that a chat bot interface is actually useful for a wide variety of legal services. The way that a lawyer interacts with a client is often so mechanistic as to be similar to a robot.

This episode was a fascinating episode that serves as a great follow-up to the recent shows on chat bots–ChatOps, Bot Day, and Slack Bots. Thanks again to O’Reilly for giving me a ticket to Bot Day last month, as it really got me thinking about chat bots as an important user interface.

The O’Reilly Bots Podcast: Can bots replace lawyers?

In episode five of the O’Reilly Bots podcast, Pete Skomoroch and I speak with Joshua Browder, the 19-year old founder and CEO of DoNotPay, a series of bots that help people with legal issues, including challenging parking tickets, challenging bank charges, and claiming government assistance for homelessness. Dubbed “the world’s first robot lawyer,” his bots have attracted 260,000 users and provided 175,000 successful parking-ticket appeals.

Browder will also be a featured speaker at O’Reilly Bot Day on October 19, 2016, in San Francisco.

We discuss what happens when someone files a challenge through DoNotPay: the bot asks jurisdiction-based questions about the user’s specific circumstances, then goes through a decision tree to find the best possible defense, after which it creates a personalized challenge letter. We also cover the potential of these bots as replacements for lawyers; in fact, Browder is developing a legal platform that others can use to develop “lawyer bots.”

Bot of the week

Pete and I walk through some of the bots that Microsoft has released recently, including MurphyBot (“the robot with imagination”), which responds to hypothetical questions by delivering an image; Your Face, which analyzes a photo of your face and delivers an insult; and Summarize, which creates short summaries of articles. We also talk about How Old, last year’s precursor to Microsoft’s recent image-related bots.
