Artificial intelligence tools are evolving faster than ever, and schools are struggling to keep up. The technology is raising questions about what counts as original work and what it means to cheat.
A free open-use artificial intelligence (AI) tool trained by millions of digital books, online writings, and other media, called ChatGPT, launched in November. It mimics human writing—allowing anyone with an internet connection to obtain AI-generated essays, poetry or answers to math problems. Art AI tools such as DALL-E 2, Midjourney, and Stable Diffusion can create images that look like they were made by a human.
While these newer AI tools are turning heads with their abilities to mimic human creativity, the use of artificial intelligence has been increasing for years.
