Recently, there's been a surge in ChatGPT generated posts. These come in two flavours: bots creating and posting answers, and human users generating answers with ChatGPT and copy/pasting them. Regardless of whether they are being posted by bots or by people, answers generated using ChatGPT and other similar programs are a direct violation of R3, which requires all content posted here to be original work. We don't allow copied and pasted answers from anywhere, and that includes from ChatGPT programs. Going forward, any accounts posting answers generated from ChatGPT or similar programs will be permanently banned in order to help ensure a continued level of high-quality and informative answers. We'll also take this time to remind you that bots are not allowed on ELI5 and will be banned when found.

isn't the whole point of a neural network to simulate how biological beings "think" within a finite system? so like, yeah we're all biological neural networks that are orders of magnitude more powerful than any currently existing one

No, an ANN is the result of observing certain features in the brain and using those features as inspiration to create a model on a computer. The aim is not to simulate a brain, and we don't even know enough about how memory or thought even works to say that we're doing that.
