Student Guide to Generative AI (ChatGPT)

This research guide provides definition, information, and resources for students to understand the basics of generative AI and ChatGPT including concerns, limitations, and opportunities.

The website, Ditch That Textbook, describes some great questions that we should all be asking as we incorporate artificial intelligence into our daily lives. How would you answer these questions?

  • Questions of humanity -- what sets us apart as humans? When should AI be used, and when shouldn't it be? 
  • Questions of obsolescence -- what can I do that AI can't do? How can I do my best to be sure my work, my passions,  my place in this world isn't replaced by artificial intelligence?
  • Questions of ethics -- how can AI use be fair, equitable, unbiased, good? What happens if it gets in the hands of bad actors? How can I make sure I'm using it in an ethical way?
