50 most influential and well known magicians in history- as per ChatGpt

I asked ChatGpt for a list of the most famous magicians of all time.

It replied that: It’s difficult to determine the most famous 100 magicians of all time as the perception of fame can vary greatly depending on the individual and their context. It therefore pulled up a list of 50 most influential and well known magicians in history.

ChatGpt 05/02/2023 Then produced the following list, quite interesting.

As you can see, quite an interesting list. Note also the repeat of some magicians (e.g. Criss Angel). This is obviously a repeat from the different places where it is drawing the data.

Would appreciate any opinions/comments you may have.
