The launch of ChatGPT was one of the major talking points of 2022, and it carried over into 2023 as well. ChatGPT was first introduced in November of the previous year, and it attracted the attention of many people due to its capacity to provide articulate answers and detailed responses.

In spite of this, there are situations in which the application of the AI tool can result in errors, as was recently demonstrated when a student was given the assignment of writing an essay on William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night.” The student attempted to finish the assignment by using ChatGPT, but their plan failed because the student made a mistake that prevented them from completing the assignment.

A response had been generated and written into the answer sheet. It read, “It stated, “Please accept my apologies; however, as an AI language model, I am not able to carry out this assignment.” Having said that, I am here to offer some advice on how you should go about approaching this essay. The instructor noticed that the student had neglected to delete the statement, and they were called out on it.

On Twitter, users reacted in a variety of ways to the post, with some asserting that the technology would advance over the course of some period of time. It should go without saying, but AI will only continue to improve with time, and eventually, educators won’t be able to tell the difference. One user commented that we should either do away with essays altogether or we should revert to the days when students wrote their essays in the classroom while being supervised and without the use of any devices other than pen and paper.
