Understanding ChatGPT at USF
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a chatbot developed by OpenAI in 2022. Based on artificial intelligence and large language models, ChaptGPT can be trained to follow instructions in a prompt and provide a detailed response. It can be used to answer questions, perform different tasks, and generate content or code in a way that mimics human outputs. It has been quite controversial of its impact in academia in light of the integrity of students' works, thus we put together some resources to help you understand more about ChatGPT and to bring awareness of it as a tool in the future classroom.
