“I had an argument with AI today,” he said. “Chat GPT ain’t so knowledgeable after all.”

A Lubavitcher looking to make conversation with Chat GPT, and perhaps learn something new, discovered a new fact all right, Chat GPT isn’t infallible. In fact, it got rather confused.

The conversation started off wit a simple question, “What dates is the Hebrew holiday of sukkot on this year of 2024?” Take a look at how the conversation progressed below.

What dates is the Hebrew holiday of sukkot on this year of 2024

ASK AI: In 2024, the Hebrew holiday of Sukkot will begin at sunset on Friday, October 11, and end at nightfall on Friday, October 18. Sukkot is a week-long Jewish holiday that begins on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei, according to the Hebrew calendar.

ASK AI: I’m sorry for the confusion. It seems there was a misunderstanding. In 2024, the Hebrew holiday of Sukkot will indeed begin at sunset on Wednesday, October 16th, and end at nightfall on Thursday, October 24th. Thank you for your patience, and I appreciate your understanding.

ASK AI: I apologize for the confusion. Thank you for the correction. In 2024, the Hebrew holiday of Sukkot will begin at sunset on Wednesday, October 16th, and end at nightfall on Friday, October 25th. Thank you for your patience, and I appreciate your understanding.

“I think Chabad.org has the wrong dates,” the Lubavitcher explained to CrownHeights.info, “So now AI is all confused.”

Beyond the mildly comedic aspect to this story, we can also take another lesson. Don’t depend on AI for your Shabbos times or other Zmanim. In fact, it might be better to be sure by referencing a real calendar.
