You need the best arguments to win a discussion, get a project approved, or win a court case. But, if you are short of preparation time, you might take a shortcut like the New York Lawyer who asked ChatGPT for help.
Ever willing to help, ChatGPT offered six cases supporting the lawyer’s argument. Unfortunately, they were entirely made up. That might work if you write a marketing blog post, but it does not hold up in court. The gullible lawyer claims he did not know that ChatGPT might be hallucinating but is, of course, facing sanctions for lying to the court.
IT professionals know that ChatGPT cannot be trusted to answer truthfully. It is not much of a problem for a programmer because the compiler or the unit tests will catch defective answers. But the rest of the world doesn’t know.
Now is the time to remind everyone in the organization of your company policy on using ChatGPT and its ilk (you do have such a policy, right?). Tell the story of the gullible New York lawyer to make the point clear.
