Perplexity for Educators

Perplexity, May 07, 2024

Perplexity is a generative AI (GAI) interface that promises accuracy and cites real sources in its answer. "It has a conversational interface, contextual awareness and personalization to learn your interests and preferences over time." Wikipedia notes, "the paid version Perplexity Pro has access to GPT-4, Claude 3, Mistral Large, Llama 3 and an Experimental Perplexity Model. It has garnered about 10 million monthly users." The current link advertises a seven-lesson course for teachers to introduce them to Perplexity. So is it any good? I asked it, "What is connectivism" and received a reasonably accurate response with a questionable set of citations. Via Miguel Guhlin.
