Artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot ChatGPT has passed many exams, including a medical licensing exam, a master’s program exam, and many other extensive tests.
- ChatGPT has been rapidly growing in popularity as the AI chatbot can generate its own content to answer questions and now—pass exams.
- The chatbot can form complex sentences, answer questions, write essays, and take quizzes. Although it does these tasks, it still often makes mistakes.
- Business Insider formed a list of the assignments, quizzes, and tests ChatGPT has passed so far as the bot continues to advance.
Why it’s important
ChatGPT has been taking social media by storm as the AI chatbot has been going viral for its artificial capabilities.
The bot can generate its own content to answer questions, take tests, and do more complex work like writing a movie script or creating legal documents. Although the bot still makes mistakes, it has passed many extensive tests and exams.
Business Insider formed a list of the assignments, quizzes, and tests the bot has passed so far to show the complex abilities of the artificial bot.
A professor at the Wharton School tested the bot with questions from a final exam in operations management—a required test for MBA students. The bot answered questions but made simple math mistakes.
Ultimately the professor concluded that the bot would have made a B on the final exam.
Researchers also put ChatGPT through a three-part medical licensing exam, which it passed. The paper published by researchers stated that the bot “performed at or near the passing threshold for all three exams without specialized training or reinforcement. Additionally, ChatGPT demonstrated a high level of concordance and insight in its explanations.”
The bot has also proven to write exams with professors testing writing prompts in the bot, to which it replied perfectly, well-thought essays almost instantly.
Science journalist and executive editor of Big Think, Alex Berezow, tested ChatGPT with a microbiology quiz that he devised, according to Business Insider.
Berezow says that the bot completed the test with answers equivalent to college-level students.
Although the bot is completing extensive exams and creating its own content, the bot still makes mistakes. The bot takes its information from the internet, which can sometimes be flooded with false information leading the bot to some misunderstandings.
