The Increasing Role of Artificial Intelligence in Our Lives

A title in the New York Times recently grabbed my attention:

Alarmed by A.I. Chatbots, Universities Start Revamping How They Teach

The emergence of "chatbots" have provided a new way to engage with content. Despite its potential benefits, some argue that it will only be successful in some places. Yet interestingly, those aged 24 and under are more likely to embrace this trend than their older counterparts; many already unknowingly used or read material created by them without realising it! As AI rapidly evolves, staying informed is key to understanding how modern media can shape our lives.

I entered the above text into www.jasper.ai. I did not add 'tone' or 'keywords' and the following was created.

It's no wonder why universities are alarmed by the rise of artificial

intelligence (A.I.) chatbots. With their ability to write articles and

respond to customer inquiries, chatbots are rapidly becoming a viable

alternative to traditional methods of communication. This has major

implications for the way that universities teach--they must start

adapting and revamping their curricula in order to keep up with the

changing technological landscape.

A.I. chatbots are especially dangerous because they can write articles and responses that appear to be written by a human, yet lack the subtlety, nuance, and emotion of an actual conversation. This could have serious implications for university students--if their teachers are not able to adequately prepare them to recognise when they are interacting with a chatbot, they may be unable to identify the difference between an A.I. and a human.

Furthermore, A.I. chatbots can potentially cause problems in terms of plagiarism. If students were to use chatbot-generated sources without proper attribution, this could lead to serious ethical issues within
