The New Google

The release of ChatGPT came at a serendipitous time, right when college students were studying for final exams or turning in final essays. I have seen the AI write love poems, give a detailed summary of an excerpt, write full sets of code, and even draw up a nondisclosure agreement.

These new tools might become the new Google. If the databases are constantly being updated with current news and information, as well as connected to the internet, we could use AI to learn and solve problems in daily life. When I went to look up an advanced organometallic chemistry topic, ChatGPT gave a better summary than Google.

College professors will have to determine how they want to proceed and if they need to have in-person final essays without technology. But without technology in the classroom, will teaching regress?
