Thanks for sharing, Richard.

I used AI to summarize something I wrote.

It had a strange reference. AI made it up. The author never wrote for the journal.

My wife told me of a case where AI gave a reference for a fake book. Then, it wrote the book to justify the reference.

It's useful. But be careful when using AI.

I just used AI to help me draft an appeal with my insurance company for NGS for metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer. It was short on citation to authority and contained a lot of generic text, nevertheless it provided a good start for the appeal. The bottom line is AI is a garbage in garbage out process. And the user has to know what went in to know if what came out. Is useful.
