ChatGPT can act as a Linux terminal. You can write and debug code for you. It can play tic-tac-toe. It, of course, explains things. It can also explain things to you like you're five. It can help you plan a party, a vacation, or a deadline. It can write your high school and college essays. It can also solve your mathematical problems. It can even pass the Bar exam. And this is just the beginning of a long, winding list of things ChatGPT can do.

In a world where we're constantly debating how generative AI will take over humans and leave us jobless, have you ever wondered – or even figured out – what ChatGPT can't do? Or won't? Spoiler alert: That's a long list too, and here are a few interesting ones.

P.S. The prompts fed to ChatGPT were for exploratory purposes only.

It won’t give information about a company’s financials

It’s responses aren’t always accurate

It won’t give a clear answer to legal and ethical matters

It refuses to indulge in hate speech

It gets stuck answering nonsensical questions

It won’t answer partisan political questions

It won’t predict outcomes of sports or similar events

It won’t promote conspiracy theories or misinformation
