I asked GPT4, "so all the analyses you have done for me are best thought of as simulations of what might have been the case if you had the real, raw data. is this correct?"
The response was: "yes, that's an accurate way to describe it. As an AI, I generate responses based on patterns and information in the data I was trained on, which includes a broad range of general knowledge up until September 2021. However, I don't have the ability to access or interact with real-time data, databases, or specific documents unless the information has been inputted into the conversation. This means that while I strive to provide accurate and helpful information based on my training data, my responses should be used as a guide and should be verified with up-to-date sources or professionals in the relevant field when necessary."
