ChatGPT The Terrible Paralegal

Okay so everyone has probably read about the lawyer who used ChatGPT to write a court filing only for the AI to just make up fake cases, which the lawyer did not independently verify leading to him getting into serious trouble in court. My friend Bert has made a compelling argument that even though AI does get things wrong, or can’t really make art, or even isn’t really intelligent, people will try to use it as long as it is “good enough“. ChatGPT is only as good as what they fed it, which is the internet, and since you can’t trust everything you read on the internet, the same goes for ChatGPT output. I think AI will get better, but it’s up to us to be able to use it judiciously, lest it leads to even more of a misinformation crisis than we already have.
