ChatGPT is only 2 months old but has the brain of a 9 year old

ChatGPT, which is now built into Microsoft’s Bing search engine, has gained a lot of interest over the past few weeks, and it doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon. As more and more people flock to clog the servers at ChatGPT, and as Microsoft works towards a million-plus waitlist for Bing AI, we’re learning more about what an AI-powered chatbot is capable of.

Michal Kosinski, a professor at Stanford University, decided to test ChatGPT by subjecting different versions of the chatbot to “theory of mind” tasks designed to test a child’s ability to look at another person in certain situations and understand what is going on in that person’s head. Essentially, these tests help assess a child’s ability to understand another person’s mental state and use that to explain or predict behavior.
