For Patients With Questions, the Robot ChatGPT Might Show More Empathy Than Doctors

From a story on by Tina Reed headlined “ChatGPT might show more empathy than docs, study finds”:

OpenAI’s ChatGPT tool can answer patient questions with more empathy than human physicians can, according to a new study.

Why it matters: Apparently, even our humanity can be bested by robots.

Details: In the study — published Friday by the research journal JAMA Internal Medicine — researchers led by the University of California San Diego, La Jolla took a randomly drawn sample of about 200 patient questions from social media platform Reddit’s AskDocs social media forum.
