(HorizonPost.com) – According to a report, ChatGPT passed the gold-standard exam required to practice medicine in the United States amidst rising concerns that AI could displace white-collar workers.
The ‘Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer’ (ChatGPT), created by OpenAI, is a language-based bot that can generate human-like responses.
The artificial intelligence system scored 52.4% and 75% on all three sections of the Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE). The annual passing rate is approximately 60 percent.
Researchers from the technology company AnsibleHealth who conducted the study, stated that achieving the passing score on this notoriously tricky expert exam without human reinforcement was a significant milestone in the development of clinical AI. The authors believe ChatGPT could become a helpful tool in medical education.
Nonetheless, some experts point out the limitations of the study’s findings and the use of AI. Nello Cristianini, Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Bath, stated that it does not imply that ChatGPT has human-like knowledge. We are in the presence of a statistical mechanism trained to generate text in the proper context and manner. Therefore, we can’t discuss comprehension.
OpenAI acknowledges the tool’s tendency to provide plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical answers. The problem appears difficult to resolve.
Tech giants have previously acknowledged that some of their projects that experimented with AI were ethically questionable and had limitations. Several businesses required human intervention to address these issues.
Judging by users’ comments on social media, ChatGPT isn’t highly regarded. One commenter said that you could get the program to argue against its original position after several questions. Another commenter said ChatGPT didn’t know the difference between Windows and Linux when he asked about them.
One commenter simply said, “No Thanks.” to the idea of AI meddling in health concerns.
Medical researcher and author Steve Kirsch recently interacted with ChatGPT.
Kirsch soon discovered that ChatGPT promoted government narratives.
But after continually questioning ChatGPT about medical topics, it soon encouraged Kirsch to speak with a healthcare professional who could provide him with evidence-based information to assist him in making health decisions.
