“Research in Progress: Artificial Intelligence and Academic Integrity at the University of Calgary” Dr. Sarah Eaton

Thursday March 30, 2023
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Dr. Sarah Eaton presents her research in progress on artificial intelligence and academic integrity at our Sociology Research Forum.

What are the ethical implications of artificial intelligence technologies for teaching, learning, and assessment? This is the research question guiding our research project at the University of Calgary, Artificial Intelligence and Academic Integrity: The Ethics of Teaching and Learning with Algorithmic Writing Technologies. When we were awarded a Teaching and Learning Grant for our project in March 2022, ChatGPT had not yet even been released. We designed our project around GPT-2 and GPT-3.

In this talk, Dr. Sarah Eaton shares details about this project, as well as insights from working in a field that is developing almost faster than scholars and educators can keep up. This will be an interactive session with lots of time for discussion.
