Can the AI driving ChatGPT help to detect early signs of Alzheimer’s disease?

The artificial intelligence algorithms behind the chatbot program ChatGPT—which has drawn attention for its ability to generate humanlike written responses to some of the most creative queries—might one day be able to help doctors detect Alzheimer’s disease in its early stages. Research from Drexel University’s School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems recently demonstrated that OpenAI’s GPT-3 program can identify clues from spontaneous speech that are 80% accurate in predicting the early stages of dementia.
