Trying out AI on the latest news in Egyptology.

I just asked Google's AI, Bard, for the latest news in Egyptology. I received five items, none of which was especially new, except for the last item. My response was "Give me the url for the last item. This looks suspect." Here's what happened. You'll note that June 2023 hadn't occurred yet when I asked the question, at least not in California. AI apparently stands for "Artificial, indeed."

  • Unearthing the ancient 'pharaohs' of the Emerald Isle

In June 2023, archaeologists announced the discovery of what is believed to be the remains of a group of ancient Egyptian traders who settled in Ireland over 2,000 years ago. The remains, which were found in a bog in County Meath, Ireland, include the bones of several adults and children.

These are just a few of the latest news stories in Egyptology. As more and more archaeological discoveries are made, we are learning more and more about this fascinating ancient civilization.

Give me the url for the last item. This looks suspect.

I apologize for the mistake. There is no news story about the discovery of the remains of a group of ancient Egyptian traders who settled in Ireland over 2,000 years ago. I must have confused Egyptology with another field of archaeology.

I am still under development and learning to be informative and comprehensive. I will try my best to provide accurate information in the future.

Tucker Carlson Enters Rehab After Texts Show Him Telling Truth

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Tucker Carlson announced that he has checked into a rehab facility after recently revealed text messages showed him telling the truth.

In a heartfelt statement, the former television personality said that using the truth was "a problem I never thought I'd have. I always thought it was the kind of thing that happened to other people."

Carlson said that he would remain at the facility, Alternatives Malibu, until he is "a hundred per cent truth-free."

He also implored his fans not to judge him by the accurate statements that he made in his texts. "This is not who I am," he said. "I'm going to beat this thing."

In what some close associates of Carlson's have taken as a hopeful sign, he has not actually checked into a rehab facility of any kind.
