As an AI language model, I can provide some insights on your questions. The number of questions on this board that can be effectively answered by AI, such as ChatGPT or Google's ChatGPT variant called "Bard," depends on several factors.
Firstly, AI models like GPT-3.5 (which powers ChatGPT) and similar models have been trained on a wide range of internet text, including forums, articles, and other sources. They can provide information and answers on various topics based on the knowledge they have acquired during training. However, the accuracy and reliability of their responses can vary depending on the specific question and the model's training data.
Secondly, while AI models are proficient at generating text and providing factual information, they may not always possess the latest or most up-to-date knowledge. Their training is typically based on a snapshot of the internet up until their knowledge cutoff date (in my case, September 2021). Therefore, their responses may not reflect recent developments or events that have occurred after the cutoff date.
Regarding troll or shill science posts, AI can be vulnerable to generating misleading or inaccurate information if it is fed false or biased data during training. However, developers and researchers are actively working on techniques to improve the reliability and trustworthiness of AI models, such as fact-checking mechanisms and ethical guidelines.
It's important to note that while AI can provide valuable information, critical thinking and human judgment are still essential when evaluating the accuracy and credibility of any content, including AI-generated responses.
