ChatGPT Worries Professors, Excites Them For Future of AI
New technology capable of writing essays at college-level proficiency is raising concerns in academia. The artificial intelligence model called ChatGPT can mimic common styles of writing. ChatGPT could make it easy for students to cheat or plagiarize other writing. Three faculty members in the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence, a part of the Fulton Schools, say ChatGPT will raise a lot of questions. Professor Katina Michael is thinking about how she can structure exams and homework assignments to discourage its use. Professor Subbarao Kambhampati says teachers will eventually be able to detect the signs of students’ use of this AI technology, and Professor Kasim Selcuk Candan sees ways ChatGPT might instead be used to enhance learning.
