New controversy of ChatGPT. The artificial intelligence tool has returned to the news, especially on social networks, after being asked by the ugliest people in each Spanish autonomous community.

The beauty of a city or a town is something very subjective that responds to the personal opinion of each person but his answer about the ugliest town in the Canary Islands clashes directly with UNESCO since ChatGPT considers that La Laguna is deserving of the 'award'. On the other hand, for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, this city is considered a World Heritage Site.

It is true that the tool itself recognizes that it has no criteria of its own to define which are the ugliest cities and that it is its algorithm that makes the decision based on millions of data it accesses. "It is important to note that the perception of beauty or ugliness or ugliness of a place can vary greatly from person to person," says the chatbot before starting to give the names of the 'graceful'. "The places mentioned have occasionally been mentioned as less attractive in some contexts," he excuses himself before giving the list.
