Free legal information through digital innovation

From Nine To Noon, 9:20 am on 6 March 2018

A team of Wellington developers has created a free resource for people who can't afford a lawyer but need to seek legal aid, through the use of artificial intelligence. The project will make information on tenancy law, employment law, and the law related to prisoners accessible to the more than 2 million New Zealanders who use Facebook every day. Kathryn talks to the developers, Geoffrey Roberts and Matthew Bartlett, the executive directors of a new initiative called Citizen AI, that Community Law Wellington is setting up to develop artificial intelligence projects for the public good.
