ChatGPT has gained much attention worldwide! With industry professionals trying to understand whether it can or cannot replace human functions, especially in content writing across various industry sectors.
To start with, what is ChatGPT? Let’s see what ChatGPT had to say about itself when asked, “How would you describe ChatGPT to non-technical users?”
ChatGPT is an advanced language model created by OpenAI. It uses machine learning techniques to generate human-like text based on the input it receives. You can ask ChatGPT questions, have conversations with it, or give it prompts to generate text, and it will respond in a way that sounds like a real person. This technology can be used for a variety of purposes, such as answering questions, generating creative writing, or helping with customer service.
ChatGPT passes a law school test in the US.
ChatGPT is under a microscopic lens of whether it can replace legal industry processes. Is ChatGPT ready for the legal industry, or is the legal sector prepared for an AI app like ChatGPT?
There are fascinating responses worldwide. However recently, ChatGPT reportedly passed a law school test in the USA with a C+ grade.
The chatbot was given the same test as other law students by Jonathan Choi, a Minnesota University Law School professor. The test contained 95 multiple-choice and 12 essay questions. The app was able to pass the test, however did not fair too well, achieving a C+ grade. Professor Choi later tweeted, “Overall, ChatGPT wasn’t a great law student acting alone”.
While officials in New York and other jurisdictions have banned the use of ChatGPT in schools, Choi suggested it could be a valuable teaching aide.
Australian law schools are concerned with ChatGPT!
Australian law schools are concerned that the app could be used to cheat in examinations. Therefore, forcing schools to consider pen and paper-based examinations. As per a report by law.com, law schools across Australia have an academic integrity policy that prohibits “inappropriate” use of digital information technology, including generating content using artificial intelligence. This will also now apply to the use of ChatGPT.
States are also moving towards a ban on the use of AI-powered app. Victoria is the latest state in the country to ban the application at public schools after similar announcements from education departments in NSW, Queensland, Tasmania and, most recently, Western Australia.
Will ChatGPT replace lawyers?
The straight answer to the question is – not yet!
As per the creators of ChatGPT, the website states that it shouldn’t be relied upon for advice as it might give inaccurate answers.
A recently released article on openai states, “One of the main challenges of ChatGPT is that it predicts feasible responses, which look like reasonable text but may not always be true. This means that ChatGPT may not always give you accurate or reliable information, and may even contradict itself.”
To cross-check this, we validated the response from the openai itself to the question, “Does ChatGPT know all the answers and can be relied upon?”. To which the app replied:
ChatGPT is a very sophisticated language model, but it is still limited by the data it was trained on. While it has a large amount of information, it may not have the most up-to-date information or may not have information about specific niche topics. Additionally, as a machine learning model, ChatGPT can sometimes generate answers that are incorrect, misleading, or biased. It’s important to always verify the information you receive from ChatGPT and use your own judgement when evaluating its responses.
