ChatGPT: Is artificial intelligence revolutionizing teaching?


Universities are discussing artificial intelligence, the federal states about public transport tickets for students. And a doctor demands that abortions be taught in medical schools. These are our texts of the week.

At the end of November, the US research company OpenAI released the ChatGPT software.

The artificial intelligence (AI) behind it produces clever-sounding texts, can reproduce, argue, analyze.

Since then, universities have been in turmoil – and editors.

Since then, I too have been asking myself whether my job could one day be replaced by machines.

Fortunately, the reality is much more complex and the answer to this question is not so clear - I learned that from the text of my colleagues Tanya Falenczyk and Lukas Kissel.

They spoke to a computer science professor and a university president about whether or not ChatGPT could make essays and term papers obsolete.

The two only agree on one thing: a ban on ChatGPT would not help anyone.

So it's worth looking into.
