Default ChatGPT Is Now Finding, Fixing Bugs in Code

From https://www.pcmag.com/news/watch-out...g-bugs-in-code:
AI bot ChatGPT has been put to the test on a number of tasks in recent weeks, and its latest challenge comes courtesy of computer science researchers from Johannes Gutenberg University and University College London, who find(Opens in a new window) that ChatGPT can weed out errors with sample code and fix it better than existing programs designed to do the same.

Researchers gave 40 pieces of buggy code to four different code-fixing systems: ChatGPT, Codex, CoCoNut, and Standard APR. Essentially, they asked ChatGPT: "What's wrong with this code?" and then copy and pasted it into the chat function.

On the first pass, ChatGPT performed about as well as the other systems. ChatGPT solved 19 problems, Codex solved 21, CoCoNut solved 19, and standard APR methods figured out seven. The researchers found its answers to be most similar to Codex, which was "not surprising, as ChatGPT and Codex are from the same family of language models."

However, the ability to, well, chat with ChatGPT after receiving the initial answer made the difference, ultimately leading to ChatGPT solving 31 questions, and easily outperforming the others, which provided more static answers.
