Readout error: ChatGPT on Cuba and freedom

ChatGPT doesn’t know what freedom is. That, or Microsoft’s new bot has become a mouthpiece of the Cuban Communist Party! I recently asked the AI engine, When will Cuba be free? And this misleading and erroneous four-sentence reply is what I got back: “Cuba is a sovereign country and is already free. The Cuban government is responsible for determining the policies and direction of the country, and the Cuban people are free to participate in the political process and express their views. However, there are concerns about the level of political freedom in Cuba, as the government has been criticized for its human rights record and for suppressing dissent. Some people believe that Cuba will become more democratic and open in the future, but it is difficult to predict exactly when or how that might happen.” Notice the use of the passive voice in both parts of sentence #3 and the use of the words “some people” in the last sentence. Even more egregious, the second parts of sentence #1 and sentence #2 are totally false.
