ChatGPT: A software tool to detect language produced by artificial intelligence has been made available, according to a blog post published on Wednesday by OpenAI, the firm behind the well-known chatbot ChatGPT.
Since its release in November, ChatGPT, a free tool that generates writing in response to a prompt, has been quite popular, raising questions about copyright and plagiarism. This material can include articles, essays, jokes, and even poetry.
The AI classifier, a language model trained on a dataset of pairs of texts on the same subject produced by humans and by AI, tries to identify texts created by AI. The company said that it employs a range of suppliers to solve problems like automated disinformation campaigns and academic dishonesty.
OpenAI notes that the detection tool is very unreliable for texts under 1,000 characters and that AI-written material can be altered to deceive the classifier in its open beta version. In order to collect input on whether imperfect tools like this one are helpful, OpenAI claimed that it was making the classifier available to the general public.
We acknowledge that identifying AI-written text has been a hot topic of conversation among educators and that understanding the boundaries and effects of AI-generated text classifiers in the classroom is just as crucial.
Some of the biggest U.S. school districts, including New York City, have banned ChatGPT since it launched in November and amassed widespread popularity among millions of users due to worries that kids will use the text generator to cheat or plagiarize.
