According to Accounting Today: "We had ChatGPT take the CPA exam — and it failed"

ChatGPT, the AI chatbot that's taken the world by storm, has already conquered numerous tests–the Wharton MBA exam, the bar exam, and several AP exams among others. But the talking bot met its match when Accounting Today ran it through a practice CPA exam as an experiment: ChatGPT failed utterly in all four sections.  Source: Accounting Today, May 8, 2023
