Can You Detect AI Writing?

Do AI advances mean we need to revisit our understanding of plagiarism and cheating as this image suggests?

Can’t I just tell students they’re not allowed to use ChatGPT and then use tools to identify when they have used it?


First, anytime we rely too heavily on policing or heavy-handed policies we run the risk of undermining trust in our classrooms. And research shows that building trust in the educational setting is an important component of student learning and success. Secondly, the reality is that any attempt to police this kind of activity is likely to turn into an arms race. Artificial intelligence tools aren’t going to go away, and they are only going to get better. While there are tools out there that can review text and make a prediction about whether or not student work has been artificially generated, they are not foolproof, and as they become better, we can probably be certain AI will evolve to outwit them.
