Doing homework using artificial intelligence, really?
On the Reddit site, we learn that children have used OpenAI’s artificial intelligence (AI) to do their homework. But according to the opinion of many, it is a very bad idea, even the equivalent of cheating, even the OpenAI system shares this opinion.
Kids on Reddit shared how they used OpenAI’s Playground system to get perfect grades on their homework. It’s no secret, but when someone asked OpenAi what they thought of how it was used in this cheating system in school, the system actually showed some pretty good arguments against its own use.
A word about Playground by OpenAI, it is an AI learning platform that allows users to build and train AI models. It is often used by researchers and developers to experiment with new AI models and applications. Now that the children have understood, they use it for dollars also to do the homework of other pupils, it seems.
Ignorance and Cheating
To the question “explain the moral and social issues of using AI to do homework”. OpenAi’s answer is very clear.
“They may not learn the material as well as they could. This could lead to problems along the way when they are supposed to know the material for exams or real-world applications. Moreover, the use of AI to do homework could lead to the cheating. »
Get perfect grades
A student writes on Reddit that artificial intelligence allows her to get « A »s on her essays, find answers to the teacher’s questions and even make $100 doing other classmates’ homework, not to mention the fact of being highly regarded by them.
Others have highlighted the lack of insight of teachers who are given perfect work by some students while awarding them A grades while the latter plateaued with Ds or Cs the previous week.
Towards an AI-driven future
The same OpenAI Playground system predicts that “this could lead to a future where humans are no longer needed to do things like homework and where AI takes care of everything. This could have a major impact on society, as it would likely lead to large-scale unemployment and a decrease in the quality of life for many people. The impact on education will be major and would likely result in a diminished need for human teachers.”
On the other hand, the same AI adds that its programs would free up a lot of time for the people who use it.
In addition to giving unfair advantages, the moral implications are of great importance for which it is necessary to think about it today.
