    ChatGPT and AI Assistance

    Artificially Intelligent tools have been in the background of our lives for many years now, as search engines, virtual assistants, language translators, facial recognition softwares, stock trading applications, tutoring tools, grading, etc. None of these previous iterations have generated the amount of interest and reaction as the ChatGPT (Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer)(OpenAI) has. ChatGPT scans the texts of the Internet and returns answers to questions that are detailed and articulate, though often inaccurate or superficial. Since its release in late November 2022, it has been the subject of reactions from multiple perspectives. New York City banned ChatGPT use in schools, as did Seattle, WA. ChatGPT is feared to be able to replace CEOs and writers of all kinds. Media is abuzz with ChatGPT and so are faculty in Higher Education. We at OTEAR have been following the discussions of ChatGPT and aim to provide our colleagues with useful and helpful information for their consideration in their practice. The resources we provide here cover the basics of what ChatGPT is and how it works, as well as provide ideas for ways it can be used in the classroom.
