AI is here to stay, encourage ChatGPT’s use in classrooms: Experts


Artificial intelligence or AI-based chatbot ChatGPT has taken the entire world on the spin with its accuracy in text generation. Taking heed to its growing use among school students, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) prohibited its’ use in the upcoming class 10 and 12 board exams. The use of ChatGPT will amount to using unfair means in the exam, the board officials said.

A large language model, ChatGPT generates human-like text based on a given prompt or context. It can do most of the text-generation tasks that involve natural language for communication.

The tool compiles information available online to form a response to a given prompt. With its open-source interface, experts have raised questions about its impact on the education industry, especially with school kids who can access the app for completing their assignments. “The app can also hamper the creative thinking and research skills of students,” is what several experts are arguing.
