AI startup Advocate thinks that the tech could help people apply for federal government benefits more easily. The New York-based startup was founded by Emilie Poteat, who got the idea after watching her stepfather try to get social security benefits. Years later, Poteat realized that AI may be able to improve that process. Poteat came on TechCrunch’s Found podcast this week to discuss why automating the application process using AI could help numerous people access government benefits easier. This episode also dives into the company building process for Poteat and Advocate as the startup hasn’t fully launched yet.
