Hong Kong University bans students from using ChatGPT

Hong Kong University has banned students from using ChatGPT and any other artificial intelligence (AI) tools while it develops its rules in this regard, Chinese media reported today.

According to the CGTN channel, the management of the center indicated in the notice that the measure is temporary and prohibits the use of these technologies for the implementation of tasks, projects and other activities set during this academic year.

If the student wants to use them, he must ask the teacher for permission, otherwise he will be accused of plagiarism, and the teacher will give him additional tests to check his knowledge.

The university was the first in Hong Kong to make such a decision and specified that it will take time to develop long-term rules for ChatGPT, created by the American company OpenAI.

ChatGPT is essentially a virtual robot, but with much more ability to complete tasks and interact with people.

OpenAI launched it on the market in November last year and assured that it is able to provide an experience as close as possible to human conversation, generate texts in different styles, translate into different languages, answer questions and deliver to the user from simple answers to generating long texts and poetry.

You can also help with tasks like writing, research, and customer service.

In mainland China, several tech giants are working on developing their own versions of ChatGPT, thereby amplifying the global frenzy that this artificial intelligence-based instant messaging tool has unleashed.

But at the same time, many social science journals and publications from the Asian giant’s universities have warned that they will reject the work of researchers who use this system to match them.

There are also more and more educational institutions around the world that prohibit students from relying on ChatGPT, and there is concern among a growing number of politicians about the impact on the quality of academic education and the national security of countries.
