A Bengaluru-based RV University has now banned the use of OpenAI’s ChatGPT. The university has banned the chatbot inside the campus to prohibit students from using it during the exams, assignments, and lab tests.
The university will check on students unexpectedly sometimes, and if the teachers get suspicious that the work submitted to them is not original, the student will be asked to do the work again by themselves.
Along with ChatGPT, the university has also banned the use of other AI-based tools such as GitHub Co-pilot and Black Box.
“We have issued an advisory to all departments in the university and banned a few AI tools like ChatGPT as students might use them in exams or to complete their assignments. The ban is already implemented,” a university spokesperson said.
New York City schools recently banned ChatGPT across devices and networks in all of New York’s public schools. According to a department spokesperson, the decision stems from the concerns about negative impacts on student learning and the safety and accuracy of the content.
