Wikipedia founder talks about using AI to write articles
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales was recently interviewed to discuss using AI to write Wikipedia articles. Wales said that the current discussion results in the community are cautious about this.

One of the big problems with AI chatbots is nonsense — what the industry calls hallucinating. It makes things up out of thin air. That’s pretty bad for an online encyclopedia.

However, AI represented by ChatGPT is still unable to recognize its own contradictions. You point out its mistake, it apologizes but keeps returning bullshit responses. (geek)
