What does GPT-3 a/k/a ChatGPT think about the Wuhan lab-leak theory? In light of this Wall Street Journal report describing how officials at the FBI and the Department of Energy recently concluded with varying degrees of confidence that it was an accidental lab leak in Wuhan that most likely triggered the Covid pandemic, I asked the popular AI chatbot to weigh in. Alas, as of this writing (27 February 2023), the cutoff date of the data used to train the GPT-3 large language model is September 2021, so the chatbot still tows the official line that is was wild bats, not sloppy scientists, who caused the outbreak.
