Apparently Google's Bard did some bullshitting in the very ad they used to introduce it, making up a fact that could've been trivially checked with a plain ol' Google search. 🤦‍♂️


I also saw a post to Reddit yesterday where someone couldn't find a GitHub repository that ChatGPT had invented out of thin air while generating instructions for how to do something.

What if instead of just making something up it had linked to something harmful? How long until someone figures out ChatGPT's made up repo/url scheme and starts squatting on them with malware?

Putting these things front and center when people are trying to get factual answers or concrete instructions is just massively irresponsible.
