GPTZero, a language model built after the launch of ChatGPT, has announced a collaboration with Peerceptiv to detect the use of generative artificial intelligence in written submissions. Post-secondary students will use the tool and display a probability indicating the likelihood that an AI wrote the submission.
The system will be tested during the spring and summer semesters, and alerts will be displayed when the probability is high, so the issue can be addressed before submitting the assignment.
While GPTZero’s integration will help teachers identify cheating, it is important to note that not all AI usage can be detected by the tool. Moreover, GPTZero’s website states that the tool should not be used to punish students since AI is constantly changing, and the results should be used to address the problem holistically.
The collaboration is a significant development in AI ethics, as it encourages responsible usage of AI and empowers educators to identify the misuse of the technology. By detecting the use of generative AI in written submissions, the collaboration can help ensure that students are not using AI to cheat and encourage them to review their methods before submitting their work.
The partnership also highlights the need for ongoing discussions and efforts to address ethical concerns around the use of AI. As AI technology advances and becomes more accessible, it is crucial to ensure that it is used ethically and responsibly. This partnership represents a step towards this goal and sets a positive example for other educational institutions and organizations.
