As of August 2023, AI policy and regulation in higher education is still developing. California's public higher education systems have not yet created a formal policy regarding using Chat GPT and other generative AI. Many universities leave the decision to apply generative AI tools in assignments and courses up to individual faculty and teaching staff. The goal of this guide is to help you make informed decisions, based on your specific pedagogical goals.
Generative AI is an artificial intelligent technology that can respond to users with text, imagery, audio, or other content. It can also help users synthesize and condense information. Generative AI, such as Open AI's ChatGPT, can use the internet data it has been trained on to produce essays, poems, and reports. It can even customize the text and information in different tones and styles as prompted by the user.
Other leading generative AI tools are Google's Bard and Open AI's DALL-E.
