When asked how it works, ChatGPT explains that “They are trained to use this information to answer questions on a wide range of topics.

Surprise, Chat GPT can answer in Creole (here at Réunion Creole).
And for lovers of good food, he can even offer a recipe for sausage sausage… without the chili. Specialists will judge the relevance of his answer:
