This week, I experimented with writing a factual post using ChatGPT.

I asked ChatGPT to write a 250-300 word blog post comparing Celiac Disease and Severe Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. What it gave me seemed relevant and factual; however, having a lot of knowledge and personal experience with the topic, I knew that some of the information was outdated and not quite accurate.

After attempting to edit the post for more accurate information, I found that it was difficult to input my own tone. I ended up spending a lot more time trying to edit the post than I would have spent just researching and writing it myself. Having to fact-check the information wasn’t super difficult since I had previous knowledge, but if I didn’t have this knowledge, I would not have known what to look for or what was incorrect. This can be dangerous if people use ChatGPT at face value and do not properly analyze the information it provides.

In the future, I do not plan to use ChatGPT to write anything factual. I do not trust that it has all of the appropriate information. I trust my own research abilities to be more accurate and, actually, a faster way to get information. There is no way to know where the data is sourced from with ChatGPT or how current and accurate it is. While I think ChatGPT can be useful, it is not a tool I would rely on. It did not benefit me in this scenario and made me realize that it cannot be trusted fully. Doing the work myself is the only way to ensure the best quality and most accurate information.
