anchors and answers questions has passed the written exam for doctors in the United States.

There is even the prospect of being able to act as a real doctor, but medical reporter Cho Dong-chan pointed out what level it is now.

I asked
ChatGPT what kind of illness he has with fever, jaundice, and abdominal pain.

[Juhan Kim/Professor of Bioinformatics, Seoul National University School of Medicine: (ChatGPT) I suspected liver disease. So I asked what kind of test I should do? (It's a complete medical school textbook, isn't it?) Yes, it's a medical school textbook.]

Harvard Medical School in the United States asked ChatGPT to take the written exam for American doctors, and he passed all three levels.

The team found that even without any medical training, ChatGPT responded with a high level of medical evidence.

[Juhan Kim/Professor of Bioinformatics, Seoul National University School of Medicine: Since ChatGPT has virtually all the knowledge known to date, it is very easy to answer the question of encyclopedic knowledge (written test).]

ChatGPT is likely to replace the basic care consultation area.

Explanations about which subjects should be treated and what tests to take, the dosage and usage of medicines, etc., can be more accurate than people.

This time, a 35-year-old woman replies that she has a fractured rib because she says she has no medical condition and chest pain every time she breathes.

The woman was not injured and asked again if it was a fracture.

He immediately reverses his answer, saying there is no reason to suspect a fracture.

Identifying the individual characteristics of a patient and making a final diagnosis is still a long way off.

[Juhan Kim/Professor of Bioinformatics, Seoul National University School of Medicine: Should I go to internal medicine? Should I go to surgery? Should I go to pediatrics? I'm very good at classifying, but it's a little difficult to make a decision based on the person's characteristics at the end.]

As ChatGPT is the first artificial intelligence that can be used by non-medical people, it is important to carefully understand the pros and cons from the beginning.

Let's talk more with <anchor>

Cho Dong-chan, a medical reporter.

Q. ChatGPT, what is the possibility of operation?

[Cho Dong-chan/Medical Reporter (Specialist): Professor Gong Doosik of Neurosurgery at Samsung Seoul Hospital is a world authority on endoscopic brain surgery, and when I asked GPT who is an authority on endoscopic brain surgery, he replied that he didn't know. So after I told him that it was him, I asked him again, and he replied that it was Professor Gong.]

[Gong Doo-sik/Professor of Neurosurgery, Samsung Seoul Hospital: Who's the best in Korea, but when you look at such valuations or ask for your opinion, ChatGPT answers because you have to answer something, and then you're saying something that's completely wrong.]

[Cho Dong-chan/Medical Reporter (Specialist): Which doctor is a doctor and which hospital is good is not well stated in textbooks or papers, so I can't afford to study ChatGPT. So there is room for abuse for advertising purposes. So there is room to use it for advertising purposes.]

Q. ChatGPT, can you identify false information?

[Cho Dong-chan/Medical Reporter (Specialist): The developers said that even if it is false information at first, it can be detected over time. However, a team of researchers at Stanford University in the United States concluded that there is no silver bullet to screen out disinformation produced by artificial intelligence. To weed out disinformation, humans still need to intervene. It can be dangerous to blindly believe in GPT chats for medical purposes.]

Q. How to use ChatGPT?

[Cho Dong-chan/Medical Reporter (Specialist): First of all, you can use it positively to educate doctors. If you pass on the effort and time spent memorizing medical knowledge to ChatGPT, doctors can become more humane doctors if they devote themselves to studying the lives of their patients.]
