“ChatGPT is High Tech Plagiarism; It Undermines Education,” Says Noam Chomsky

In an interview with the host of YouTube channel EduKitchen, Chomsky explained: “For years there have been programs that have helped professors detect plagiarized essays,” Chomsky says. “Now it’s going to be more difficult, because it’s easier to plagiarize. But that’s about the only contribution to education that I can think of.” Chomsky sees the use of ChatGPT as “just a way of avoiding learning.” (…) “Students learn absolutely nothing from this.” (…) “The way to deal with it is to make education programs interesting enough.”
