I wonder if ChapGPT knows timetable & train orders? could it be a trainmaster/dispatcher?

Of course, this "AI" is capable of learning (i.e. adding to its knowledge base and its inferences).
So having read, say, annotated criticisms of its own output, it can make further investigations and

back the inputs that got it there. So it should be "self-correcting" as long as its output has referees;
which is not that much different from how we learn stuff -- and go way off track, when we have no
referee. :-)
I read it on the Internet, so it must be true :-) And therein lies the problem of web based knowledge; the incorrect blather grows exponentially while the actual source data remains constant so eventually the AI bots will be quoting each other as authoritative sources :-(
