Hertie School defines guidelines for use of artificial intelligence software at university
Flexible approach aims to seize opportunities, minimise risks of AI for teaching, research and learning.
The Hertie School has issued guidelines for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in teaching and research for the first time. The rules take a flexible approach that encourage students and faculty members to explore and take advantage of the benefits of ChatGPT and other AI-based technology while maintaining academic integrity.
When it comes to using AI software in an academic setting, the rules define clear limits. For example, anyone who claims AI-generated texts or translations as their own violates the rules of basic academic integrity and will face the consequences of plagiarism. Students and researchers are also responsible for the content of AI-based work, even if the software-generated content is incorrect.
Cornelia Woll: Seize the opportunities, don't demonise AI
"Artificial intelligence opens up opportunities in the lecture hall and research lab that we never dreamt of – opportunities we should use and not demonise,” says President Cornelia Woll. “An intelligent and transparent use of new tools doesn’t replace one's own head but can save time and improve one's own work."
Dean of Graduate Programmes Thurid Hustedt adds: "We also specifically want to encourage our faculty to incorporate self-learning systems into their teaching. This is the only way we can create transparency and knowledge with the use of new technologies. But it's also clear that passing off a paper written by an AI as your own is plagiarism and will be punished as such."
