About The Study: This analysis of the quality of responses to public health questions found that ChatGPT consistently provided evidence-based answers, although it primarily offered advice rather than referrals. Given the same addiction questions, Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Samsung’s Bixby collectively recognized 5% of the questions and made one referral, compared with 91% recognition and two referrals with ChatGPT. 

Authors: John W. Ayers, Ph.D., M.A., of the University of California San Diego in La Jolla, is the corresponding author.
