Undoubtedly, ChatGPT has generated a revolution with its arrival and many have approached the world of artificial intelligence by interacting with this chat bot. Almost every day there is some news with ChatGPT and this time it has generated surprise because it has been known that he passed the tests to obtain an MBA and a medical license, tests that human beings must prepare for years to pass.
This is not the first time the artificial intelligence bot has been put to the test, as it has been used to perform academic and scientific work and even medical diagnostics. The news now is that ChatGPT has, in theory, obtained a license to practice as a physician and has also managed to obtain an MBA, which opens up the question of the possibilities of using this type of artificial intelligence.
ChatGPT gets an MBA and could he practice medicine?
One of the experiments was conducted at Wharton University of Pennsylvania, where Professor Christian Terwiesch used ChatGPT and asked it the questions that are part of the final MBA exam. The results he obtained were surprising, as the bot not only passed the test but also achieved a grade between B and B-, which would be equivalent to a 7 or an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. Although Prof. Terwiesch clarified that the robot had some errors in some calculations, many errors were easily correctable by asking the questions in a different way or by adding more information.
In addition to this, ChatGPT’s other news is that it has also managed to pass the test to obtain a medical license in the United States. The exam, which is taken by medical students in order to practice medicine, consists of three stages, all of which were passed by artificial intelligence. It only did not answer questions related to the application of medicine itself, as ChatGPT was programmed not to provide medical advice.
A score between 52.4 and 75% was obtained, with a passing percentage of 60% being required. In fact, according to the researchers, the bot provided 89% of responses that can be considered clinically valid and non-obvious.
What implications does this news have for the world of ChatGPT and artificial intelligence?
While many understand this news about artificial intelligence as something revolutionary and a preview of what the future of this type of technology will be, there are others who claim that the fact that ChatGPT has passed the exam to practice as a doctor only shows the shortcomings of this exam. While these are impressive results, it does not mean that artificial intelligence can understand and reason, but only that it can handle information efficiently.
There is no doubt that the use of ChatGPT and similar artificial intelligence bots have numerous applications. According to the researchers who carried out the tests to obtain the medical license for ChatGPT, this type of bots show an interesting potential to assist physicians and will also be helpful for clinical decisions.
