It’s important to understand that ChatGPT is NOT a search engine; it is a language model trained to generate text. It is not connected to the Internet and has limited knowledge based on the data it has been trained on. If you, like myself, are using a free version, the data it has access to might be a few years old.
Therefore, expecting accurate and up-to-date information from ChatGPT is unrealistic. However, I still see people asking random questions and even sharing the answers provided by ChatGPT or using them as a basis for blog articles. If this is solely for amusement purposes, then that’s fine with me. However, relying on ChatGPT for factual information can be misleading.
I beg you. Please do NOT use ChatGPT for your research.
But now I wonder…if more people post blog articles based on the false old information ChatGPT fabricates, does it become a new truth?
