ChatGPT is great but the volume of users can mean it is unusable for big chunks of the day. Microsoft is due to launch their AI version shortly. If you want to get early access, this is the link: https://www.bing.com/new/fastaccess?form=MY0291&OCID=MY0291

Hi CK - this may be of interest - 'The Bottom Line' on R4 dealing with this subject . . . . .

My ole' Dad would have said - 'what a waste of science!' and I think he'd be right.

I'd be interested to see what use this has in reality and learn what dangers might lie within . . .

The AI genie is very much 'out of the bottle' - see this BBC article about Goldman Sachs predictions. It does highlight that there are as many opportunities as threats to jobs, but work is going to look very different in a few years. If you've not seen it yet, take a look at DoNotPay. A lot of lawyers are going to lose their jobs. Mishcon de Reya is already recruiting in the AI space: legal Prompt Engineer

Many years ago there was an expression: “it must be true, it was in the papers!”  Then it became: “it must be true, I saw it on TV!”  But it seems to me that nowadays the 'truth' has become an elusive concept, becoming strictly personal for the most part, which itself relies more and more on what the individual sees on social media and wants to believe. 
AI and particularly ChatGPT have only served to muddy the waters of 'truth' and I see now that the guy who created  ChatGPT has called on US lawmakers to regulate AI by creating a new agency to license AI companies. (One wonders who will then regulate the regulators!)
Now other AI models have entered the market and these and ChatGPT can quickly and easily create credible articles or responses to questions - but can also be wildly inaccurate or one-sided.
No wonder that colleges and universities are worried that students' work may not be their own, or that businesses are concerned that studies, business plans and reports may not be properly factual.... the list of potential dangers could go on.
I confess that the practicalities of AI are beyond my IT comprehension, but it does seem to me that there is an inherent danger in the ChatGPT etc concept getting an unregulated hold on society.  I wonder what others think.

Does ChatGPT provide references, footnotes and the like?

Of all the examples from ChatGPT that I've seen so far, there have been no references, footnotes etc. They have actually looked like low level teenage essays that would be easily identified as nowhere near university level, and with no references, footnotes, etc, surely any university would just sent the essay right back to the student and tell them to up their game.
