'Artificial' Intelligence- Literally

'With great power comes great responsibility'


Artificial Intelligence (AI) has undoubtedly brought about numerous and significant advancements in various fields. It is a powerful technology with the potential to revolutionize our lives. However, like any powerful tool, it can also be misused.


The primary negative use of AI by students is academic dishonesty. With the vast amount of information available online and the ability of AI algorithms to generate different and seemingly original content, students may utilize AI-powered tools to plagiarize essays, assignments and projects. Instead of engaging in active learning, evaluation of gathered information and problem-solving, they become heavily dependent on AI applications to provide quick answers. This jeopardizes the fundamental principles of education, such as critical thinking, developing logical reasoning, analytical skills, creativity, integrity, and enhancement of crucial skills that are essential for their future careers. Misusing AI to gain unfair and temporary academic advantages is a disservice to one's personal growth and the development of genuine knowledge and skill.


Dependency on AI for information instead of those around can be harmful. AI-powered virtual assistants and chatbots may provide answers to student's questions, but these answers may be biased due to biased data fed to AI algorithms. These answers lack the empathy and human emotion that teachers and peers can offer. Users lose the ability to question the information they come across and engage in thoughtful analysis due to the false belief in the accuracy of the chatbot. They destroy their critical thinking and the ability to consider multiple perspectives, as they may be less exposed to contrasting viewpoints and diverse sources of information.


AI is a tool for growth, not deception. Responsible use of AI is not just an obligation, but a pathway to a thriving future that we all share. We as students must ensure responsible usage of this power in a way that has no detrimental effect on our learning and personal growth. We must use this power to benefit society rather than cause harm.
