Debate and Refute ChatGPT’s Transformative Capabilities in Learning

Share this article

When using ChatGPT, problems may occur such as hallucinations, bias, and inaccurate data. Instead of complaining and refusing to use the ChatGPT because of these problems, look at it as a learning opportunity.

Have a debate and refute ChatGPT. Yes, it sounds like we are talking to a human. But that is not the point. We are actually having an argument with ourselves.

Problems and errors may occur, but they are not simply obstacles, these are potential resources for present growth opportunities. Have you experienced asking questions whenever you encounter an error?

Spark Learning Through Questions

I would start by having a debate with myself through ChatGPT as a medium. For example, if data is questionable, you may dig deeper, and have an inquiring, questioning mindset.

Surface Questions

These are questions to ask ChatGPT to validate the data and knowledge:
1. What methods can be employed to capture and document shared ideas accurately?
2. Are there any processes in place to review and validate the quality and usefulness of shared ideas?
3. How can you encourage critical thinking and constructive feedback when sharing ideas?
4. What steps can be taken to ensure that shared ideas are well-researched and supported by evidence?
5. Are there opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration to bring different viewpoints together?
6. Are there mechanisms to capture and leverage past successful ideas or solutions to inspire new thinking?
7. Are there feedback loops to provide updates and progress on implementing shared ideas?

In a sales process where the client has been with your company for over 20 years and its purchases from you generate 50% of your company review, how would you approach reviewing a proposal from the client to reduce your charges to 5%?

The client refuses to provide any reasons. They have repeatedly asked this question over the past two years and your company has yet to respond. What might be your options in approaching this situation? There is a disagreement on what to do: one thinking is that, since the client has been relying on your company for their supplies, they will be reluctant to persist with their questions. On the other hand, another thinking says, we need to give in since in the long run we save money by replacing this client, in case they leave the company. What are the best options?


I disagree with this “Seek expert advice: If the internal disagreement persists, consider seeking advice from industry experts, consultants, or legal counsel who can provide objective insights and help assess the situation from a strategic standpoint.”

ChatGPT Response

I apologize for any confusion caused. I understand that you disagree with seeking expert advice from industry experts, consultants, or legal counsel. It’s entirely valid to have a different perspective on seeking external advice. In that case, you can focus on internal discussions and considerations within your company to reach a resolution. Here are some alternative suggestions…

We begin to inquire as to why it occurred, where the error happened, and how to correct it. Learning is sparked by this process of questioning. We rise to the occasion and begin developing our capacity for problem-solving even when we are confronted with false assumptions.

The back-and-forth experience between you and yourself aided by ChatGPT is where learning occurs. Russell Ackoff relates this to the Triple Loop Learning Theory. We learn by repeating and changing our assumptions and context depending on the results that we get.
