They create a lawyer robot that provides legal advice to refugees

Help people seeking asylum in the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom

   In 2015, Stanford student Joshua Browder developed a virtual assistant to answer legal questions after accumulating several parking fines in the United Kingdom. Now his little robot DoNotPay has focused on guiding people seeking asylum in the United States, Canada and, also, the United Kingdom.

According to Browder, he has worked for months in this function. “I’ve been trying to get this going for about six months,” he explains to The Guardian. “Initially we wanted to do it in the summer but I wanted to make sure it was okay because it was a complicated issue, it took months and months of work but we wanted to make sure it was correct,” adds Browder.

In order to work, the chatbot asks a series of questions that the refugee must answer and will show if he is a refugee capable of protection of asylum under international law.

The data allows you to automatically fill out an asylum application form. Once the request is sent, the data is destroyed from your servers in the next ten minutes.

Browder’s next step is to expand its service to more languages. At present, according to the media cited, is working on the translation into Arabic.
