Today it attracts by the way to solve any type of question, although it is possible to make mistakes. But the use that can be given to it has aroused some criticism.

In an interview with the EduKitchen YouTube channel, Chomsky noted some problems in education. “For years there have been programs that have helped teachers detect plagiarized essays. Now it will be more difficult, because it is easier to plagiarize. But that is the only contribution to education that I can think of, ”he indicated.

According to the Open Culture report, the prominent American linguist, the ChatGPT system “may have some value for something”, but “it is not obvious what”. In that way, he for one sees it as “basically high-tech plagiarism” and “a way of avoiding learning.”
