This Stanford Students ‘Robot Lawyer’ Can Get You Out Of Parking Tickets: VICE News Tonight

This segment originally aired Oct. 19, 2016, on VICE News Tonight on HBO

19-year-old Stanford student Joshua Browder has overturned more than 190,000 parking tickets with the help of his artificially intelligent “robot lawyer.”

Browder says he created his parking ticket bot after he received more than a dozen fines for his own parking. “It’s really stressful,” he told VICE News correspondent Ravi Somaiya. “I’m not the best at understanding when there are three signs saying different things, and so out of necessity I had to become knowledgeable in how to fight these tickets.”

Browder has received offers from tech companies and entrepreneurs to buy his website, but he has refused all of them so far.
