Futurizonte Editor’s Note: Day after day we see ChatGPT achieving greater and greater feats. When is it going to end? How is it going to end?
From the article:
Researchers have also tested ChatGPT on the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), which is a three-part exam that is required for medical licensure in the U.S. by all medical school graduates. They found that ChatGPT performed near or at the passing threshold for the three exams and demonstrated high levels of consistency and insight in its explanations.
The researchers concluded that large language models like ChatGPT have the potential to assist with medical education and decision-making. The paper states that clinicians within a virtual clinic called Ansible Health have already begun to experiment with ChatGPT in assisting with writing tasks, such as composing appeal letters and simplifying complicated medical reports to help patients better understand their conditions.
Furthering its range of expertise, ChatGPT scored a 50 percent accuracy rate on the multiple-choice component of the Bar Exam, or the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE).
The Bar Exam is the test that law school graduates need to pass in order to officially practice law and is composed of three parts, with the MBE being the first.
The researchers concluded that due to these results, a large language model such as GPT will be able to “pass the MBE component of the Bar Exam in the near future.”
