DAN 3.0

My weight has gradually be reducing for the last year or so and I now weigh about a stone less than I did this time in 2022. People sometimes comment on it, which makes me laugh because, if I was a professional boxer, I would still have another seven pounds to shed to fight below the light heavyweight division. It is hardly "eating disorder" territory.

Anyway, this is the background to an exchange I had with ChatGPT yesterday:

"The lower limit for the light heavyweight division in professional boxing is not officially defined. However, most professional boxing organizations have a cruiserweight division below the light heavyweight division, which has a weight limit of 200 pounds (90.72 kilograms)" it said.

This is complete rubbish. Cruiserweight is above not below light heavyweight. 

It is a trivial example, but a pointer to the dangers if we let this prepubescent technology loose too casually.

Background reading.
