using AI for articles, with the chatbots making errors that aren't caught by human editors who are supposedly checking for errors. The errors have included potentially harmful health and financial advice, which I don't find "very amusing."
I'm not amused, either, by ChatGPT often providing fake quotes and citations, or claiming real people have committed crimes they haven't committed.
Or churning out bios with false information on schools attended, jobs held, etc.
These chatbots all have disclaimers that they will get things wrong. They will simply invent "facts" that aren't facts. Users are advised to check everything chatbots generate carefully and NOT rely on them for anything important.
It's despicable that any magazine would replace writers with chatbots. It shows those magazines have no respect for their readers and care only about profits. In which case they don't deserve readers.
