Artificial intelligence and education
Professor Dr. Paulo Boa Sorte from the Federal University of Sergipe (UFS) coordinates a research group that studies the GPT.
In his perspective, this AI technology "makes us rethink concepts such as creativity, intellectual property and authorship". From this, the educator raises the discussion of attention to plafi, copyright and access to cultural goods with the use of AI tools such as GPT that is capable of generating texts.
Therefore, for Paulo, one of the great challenges of AI in education is precisely the ethical issue, which involves plagiarism and the dissemination of fake news.
