ChatGPT Is Causing Universities To Reconsider Plagiarism. Kai Cobbs, a sophomore at Rutgers University, realised something in late December of that year that he had never considered possible: perhaps machines are dumber than people.
ChatGPT Is Causing Universities To Reconsider Plagiarism
Cobbs chose to experiment with the chatbot as he wrote an article on the history of capitalism after hearing his peers gush about the generative AI tool ChatGPT. Cobbs anticipated the programme to deliver a nuanced and deliberate answer to his unique study aims. The tool is best renowned for its capacity to generate long-form written content in response to user input prompts. Instead, a generic, poorly written work that he would never dare to claim as his own appeared on his computer.
“The writing was of abject poor ness. The language lacked subtlety and was awkward, according to Cobbs. As for using writing produced by ChatGPT for a paper or anything else, “I just logically can’t envision a student using writing that was generated using ChatGPT for a paper or anything.”
Cobbs’ contempt is not shared by everyone. Teachers have been grappling with how to manage a new generation of student work produced with the aid of artificial intelligence ever since OpenAI unveiled the chatbot in November. Universities have been hesitant to follow some public school systems, such as New York City’s, in banning the use of ChatGPT on campus computers and networks to prevent cheating.
Arrival Of ChatGPT Caused Debates Among Many Universities
On college campuses where new digital research tools are constantly in use, the arrival of generative AI has complicated debates about what constitutes plagiarism and academic integrity.
Do not be misled; concerns about inappropriate internet use in academics have not arisen since the creation of ChatGPT. Universities all throughout the country were trying to figure out their own research philosophies and understandings of ethical academic labour when Wikipedia launched in 2001, pushing regulatory boundaries to keep up with technological innovation.
The stakes are now a little more complicated as schools learn how to handle work created by machines rather than strange attributional logistics. Higher education is engaging in the well-known game of “catch-up,” changing its policies, standards, and views while other professions do as well. The internet’s ability to reason independently is the only distinction today.
