A New York-based attorney is facing potential sanctions after using OpenAI’s ChatGPT to write a legal brief he submitted to the court. The problem? The AI Chatbot filled the brief with citations to fictitious cases, a symptom of AI chatbots called “hallucinating.” In an affadavit, the lawyer claimed, “I was unaware of the possibility that [ChatGPT’s] content could be false.” Engadget reports that attorney Steven Schwartz of the law firm Levidow, Levidow and Oberman used AI to help with a lawsuit against the Colombian airline Avianca in a ground-breaking case, highlighting AI’s potential drawbacks in legal practice. However, the resulting legal brief prepared with ChatGPT’s help was filled with references to court rulings that simply did not exist.

Lawyer who struggled at hearing goes viral
In the ‘Barry’ Finale, Hollywood Gets Away with Murder
This article includes spoilers for the “Barry” series finale. When “Barry” premiered , the dark HBO comedy seemed like a classic two-track TV series: There was the crime story, and there was the showbiz story. Its oddball premise followed Barry Berkman (the star, co-creator and director Bill Hader), a traumatized ex-Marine turned hit man who took up acting as a respite from his deadly day job. One path of the series tabulated Barry’s body count as he became entangled in the L.A. mob wars, made fitful attempts at redemption and blazed through a series of one last jobs. Another path circled the outskirts of Hollywood fame, as Barry joined an acting class taught by the well-cured ham Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler) and dated Sally Reed (Sarah Goldberg), a talented but struggling fellow student. But by the final season, which ended Sunday, those two paths had merged like strands of L.A. freeway. The brutality of show business, the performativity of murder — they are all, in … [Read more...] about In the ‘Barry’ Finale, Hollywood Gets Away with Murder

Concerns, Complaints and a Suicide Shake Chelsea F.C.
LONDON — Month after stressful month, the problems mounted inside Chelsea F.C. Almost a dozen employees of the club’s marketing department said they had come to expect being berated by their boss in front of colleagues. Others said they had faced his wrath in more humiliating ways, ordered to stand up and leave staff meetings on a single man’s word. The pressure took its toll. By last year, multiple Chelsea employees had vanished for weeks, or sometimes months, of medical leave. At least 10 staff members — from a department that employs about 50 people — had left the club altogether, one employee said. Then, in early January, a well-liked former staff member killed himself. While it is unknown whether workplace pressure was to blame, his death stunned the Chelsea employees who had come to consider him a friend and sounding board. During conversations at a memorial service for him earlier this year, their sense of shock and sadness gave way to anger. “It should never have … [Read more...] about Concerns, Complaints and a Suicide Shake Chelsea F.C.
YouTube Star Hank Green Will Publish His First Novel Next Year
The heroine of Hank Green’s debut novel, “An Absolutely Remarkable Thing,” is an art student in New York City named April May, who finds herself at the center of a vast international mystery. One day, April stumbles on a giant robot sculpture in Midtown Manhattan, and makes a video with the figure, which goes viral. She becomes famous as news spreads that similar sculptures have mysteriously appeared in dozens of cities, and people around the world struggle to understand where the figures came from and what they mean. The novel, which will be published by Dutton in fall 2018, flirts with otherworldly themes. But the story grew out of something very real Mr. Green has wrestled with in his own life: internet fame, and the anxiety and awkwardness it can bring. “In a lot of ways it comes from a lot of my personal experience with how success feels,” he said. “There’s the very weird feeling of being bigger in people’s heads than you feel you are.” To his legions of devoted YouTube … [Read more...] about YouTube Star Hank Green Will Publish His First Novel Next Year
Why Are the Language Police Obsessed With Vice Presidents?
It’s now a staple of conservative media: Vice President Kamala Harris speaks in batty, confused loops. Her words float from mouth to sky, where they mass into fluffy shapes that hazily resemble meaning. Choice excerpts from her speeches circulate, like this one, delivered on April 25 at Howard University: “I think it’s very important, as you have heard from so many incredible leaders, for us, at every moment in time, and certainly this one, to see the moment in time in which we exist and are present, and to be able to contextualize it, to understand where we exist in the history and in the moment, as it relates not only to the past but the future.” Last year, Fox News compiled a year-end best-of list of similar clips . Harris, the story goes, is pathologically incoherent, cringingly inept at best and perhaps, at worst, somehow impaired. This is a marked reputational shift for a former attorney general who, a few years ago, enjoyed the image of an incisive, prosecutorial … [Read more...] about Why Are the Language Police Obsessed With Vice Presidents?
