News anchors and politicians are fear mongering about the face melting rise of artificially intelligent systems.

Creative people and software engineers are concerned about this AI taking their jobs.

And now the first shots against are fired as New York City bans ChatGPT on some of it’s networks.

“Due to concerns about negative impacts on student learning, and concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of content, access to ChatGPT is restricted on New York City Public Schools’ networks and devices,” education department spokesperson Jenna Lyle said “While the tool may be able to provide quick and easy answers to questions, it does not build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, which are essential for academic and lifelong success.”

Teachers are in panic mode over this tool.

When shown ChatGPT writing side by side with student writing, teachers and educators cannot tell them apart.

When students were asked about ChatGPT and if they used it for school, some students were genuinely surprised that teachers even knew what ChatGPT was, which is kinda funny.
