When ChatGPT is wrong, as is often the case, it is confidently wrong, often with citations.

That's why I suggest only using it on things that are immediately verifiable.

Most code falls under this category, so I think coding is a good application of it, in a capacity as ersatz instructor to someone trying to learn a concept.

I've not seen how advanced the code it can generate is. I haven't really used it for anything like this, but I have a colleague who is an engineer who uses it sometimes to help him through code he's stuck with.

I'm a bit iffy on it myself, but OTOH I don't see a reason why not to try it when you get stuck.
