Submitting writing or other content generated by an artificial intelligence as your own work is a violation of Columbia College Chicago’s academic integrity policy.
Check your course’s syllabus or ask your instructor for their policy on using artificial intelligence in your work.
If you do use generative AI in your work, be sure to cite its use.
Remember that citing the use of an AI is not the same as citing the source of a piece of information in its output.
Be aware of the following shortcomings of current generative AI technology:
They may not provide specific sources or citations for the information they output. Their responses are an amalgam of content pulled from across the Internet.
It has been demonstrated that when an AI does provide academic citations, they are sometimes fake or “hallucinations.”
The Internet content that AI is trained on is dated. The information that an AI is using to generate its responses is sometimes several years old.
AI can demonstrate the same social and intellectual biases of its source material.
