Generative AI refers to a class of Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems that can create or generate new content, such as text, images, audio, or video. These systems are trained on large amounts of data and use statistical techniques to learn the patterns and characteristics of the data. Once trained, they can generate new content similar to the training data but not necessarily identical. Generative AI models include diverse applications, including natural language processing, computer vision, speech recognition, and more.
Generative AI applications include DALL-E, Stable Diffusion, and ChatGPT, among others. DALL-E is a generative AI model developed by OpenAI. It is a variant of the GPT-3 model that can generate images from text descriptions. ChatGPT is a large-scale pre-trained language model also developed by OpenAI. It is based on transformer architecture and is trained on massive text data, allowing it to generate human-like text.
The use of generative AI, whether via a platform and/or app, is included in, and subject to, the Plagiarism Policy described in the Course Policies section of this site.
- Generative AI may not be used to generate content intended to be submitted as original work.
- Students must indicate when they have used Generative AI’s AI-generated content in their work and provide proper citations.
- Generative AI should not be used to generate content that is discriminatory or offensive in any way.
- Students are responsible for ensuring that any information obtained from ChatGPT is accurate and up-to-date.
- Plagiarism, including using Generative AI-generated content without proper attribution, will result in disciplinary action as per the University’s policies.
- Students should refrain from using Generative AI to generate work that is then submitted under multiple usernames or pseudonyms.
- Students should refrain from using Generative AI to generate work that is then submitted to multiple assignments or classes.
- Students should refrain from using Generative AI to generate work that is then submitted as their own after making minimal changes.
- Students are responsible for understanding and adhering to the University’s academic integrity policy.
- Any suspicion of plagiarism or academic dishonesty should be reported to the responsible person or team.
- Generative AI’s results are generated based on the data it has been trained on and may be similar to existing work. Students should use their judgment and critical thinking to avoid plagiarizing.
- Generative AI usage should comply with the University’s policies and regulations.
