Some are saying that chatgpt has better bedside manners than most doctors and could almost pass a medical licensing exam. Is this true?

According to members of the American Medical Association, using ChatGPT now for diagnosis of a complex medical condition holds “high potential for harm,” because most generative models are trained on popular materials that may contain misinformation or purposeful disinformation instead of rigorously peer-reviewed scientific literature. “I would love to be able to say: We programmed ChatGPT with 10 million deidentified patient charts, and patients like the one in front of you had the following treatments from other clinicians in the past,” Dr. Halamka said. “That would be lovely. We're not there yet.”

According to this information, the AI we have right now isn't up to par with what would be needed to accurately make diagnosis for patients.
