There has been a fair amount of discussion regarding ChatGPT on the medical librarians' listserv. One big problem is that it tends to make up citations--lots of libraries (including ours) have been getting requests for nonexistent articles. Add ChatGPT to the predatory journal industry, stir in some medical schools that require students to publish a paper before they graduate, and you'll see why so many medical librarians feel like they have hedgehogs trying to crawl out of their chests.

Hi Igor:

No, not lying actually. It's exactly doing what it is designed to do. It is generative AI. Pulling up from what it already knows and tries to come up with an answer it may not know. What it expects is the user to give it feedback to correct the incorrect assumptions which it then tries to learn for the next time someone asks the question.

You can see the fun if you try to use ChatGPT to generate SQL reports. it will succeed with very simple ones. For complex ones it often makes up the db schema. Pointing out the actual schema will train it.
