Citation URLs are all broken links and quotations are frequently incorrect

When I ask ChatGPT to define almost any topic and provide some number of citations, almost every link it provides is broken. The only links I’ve found that work are specifically when I ask it to include a citation to a Wikipedia article.

In the citations it provides, ChatGPT will often include supposed quotations taken from the sources. I have yet to find an exact quote that ChatGPT presents as quoted content. I’ve run dozens of quotes through Google search and found none of them.

That is because chatGPT is a text prediction tool, it does not have realtime access to the internet to provide citations. It will make up URLs because its job is to write text, not necessarily be factually accurate
