Why is it considered "bad" or "wrong" to use GPT to complete schoolwork when all that it's doing is regurgitating the exact same information you're going to get from Google anyways but in a much faster and more concise manner instead?

    Because if you use chat GPT you're not learning anything, you're not gaining any skills, you're just finishing a chore.

      Realistically though a chore is all that most of education is.
      It's just daycare for teenagers at this point.
      Sure I suppose with college it's more subjective but even then if it's a meme degree not really.
      >Because actually writing something teaches you craftsmanship of the mind and concepts
      All you're actually doing is the same thing the AI is doing though, you're interpreting and than reconfiguring shit other people wrote on some internet forum so all that's really happening is that you're sacrificing efficiency for the sake of going through all the extra hoops you don't actually have to go through.
      It's like making a pizza from scratch VS getting a frozen one and popping it in the oven.
      You're still more or less getting the same or at least a very similar product in the end but the latter doesn't take nearly as much time or effort.

          I never said it was, hence the term "reconfigure".
          You take the thing that other people wrote and then word it differently so that you aren't technically copying them.
          How is that not what the AI is doing?

              Yes there is if you can fricking READ troglodyte.
              You are interpreting the information by establishing an understanding of what the cobbled together information is conveying, same as you would by perusing shit on Google.
              Just because you didn't write the exact wording yourself does not mean you do not understanding nor concur with what the bot is explaining.
              If the purpose of the exercise in question is to grasp the subject matter at hand then you're doing just as swell of a job at it.
              The main and only significant difference being the time in which it takes you to compile said information and then reformat it which is a bullshit thing to be assmad about, just admit you like wasting people's time on frivolous and redundant garbage because that's what you were forced to do when you were in the education system.

                No, for most people this statement isn't true. That's the entire point.

                This can be fairly easily tested, by simply requiring students (at some point after they completed the initial assignment) to answer the same set of questions again without access to a computer. There are some high-IQ people who will be able to answer the questions again, independently, after merely reading in passing the blurb they are cutting and pasting out of the Chat-GPT response. But the vast majority of people won't be able to, and will do a much worse job than they would have if they had completed the assignment in the traditional way.

                And the pedagogical method underlying the assignment is aimed at the majority of people, and not the handful of high IQ exceptions. (This is true of most schoolwork, and high IQ people should be used to it by now.)

        Right, and that's the desired outcome of the assignment.

        The pedagogical method here is that if you have to go through the process of reading things that others have said on a topic and come up with your own words to rephrase or re-state it, by doing that you will learn about the topic. The assignment isn't designed to test if you know how to *find* the answer; the assignment is designed to make you learn and remember the answer.

        This is actually very true. If I came across a person who could not add, subtract, multiply, or divide without using a calculator, I would very urgently seek to not employ them, or give them any responsibility, or be dependent on them for anything at all.

        There are some higher functions available on a calculator for which this statement is not true, but even for those functions there are SOME jobs and SOME responsibilities I would not extend to someone who didn't know how to complete the task(s) without a calculator.

The flipside is I'm relied on a lot and have to plan days off weeks in advance, boss outright told me no one can match my performance in private when he invited me to his house for a bbq and gifted me a Hublot.

        Nice way to move the goalpost, but learning how to perform an operation and doing the operation in your head is often faster than storing it in your calculator's memory and plugging everything in there. Those tests where calculators weren't allowed were usually pretty straightforward on the arithmetic side of things anyway. You know you fricked up somewhere if you're having to do long division.

    Because the task was set for you to practice your writing, not what you actually wrote. You aren't writing a fricking thesis paper for every college assignment, are you?
    I never got the point of AI tbdesu. Even for my college english class, I never actually read any of the books assigned, just watched summaries. But I found writing to be fun, one of the only things I enjoyed. Reading was a bore, but seeing how good I could write given my surface level understanding, while bullshitting a lot of points, was almost cathartic. Like sticking it to my profs while they thought I was a good student.

        That's not how learning works at all. Have you ever tried going to a math exam while only watching videos and not taking notes? the information pretty much goes in one ear and out the other. The point of practice is so that doesn't happen and so you can actually build a skillset.

    Same reason teachers made us do math by hand and they're only excuse was that we wouldn't always have a calculator... even though everyone old enough to speak fluent English in the year 1999 was too old not to know that everybody was going to have a calculator in their pocket forever. Lying c**ts.

    was 10 years ago. Its results can be unreliable at times and the institutions are still warming up to it. Maybe use a secondary source to confirm the things you're not sure about. Otherwise its fine to use it if you can hide it and you just don't tell anyone.

    It's like driving a car. You have all sort of safety features in a modern vehicle, BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO DRIVE.
    Knowing how to formulate your own argument rather than relying on a robot will be important for moving society forward and not just running on vapors from WWII. GPTs only spit out things that have been done before in some way, and you have to do careful prompting to get it to generate newish ideas and write about them.

    Knowing how to do it yourself = Good
    Not knowing how to do it and letting a robot do it = Bad
    Knowing how to do it yourself and steering the robot = Best

    Because you're not developing any reliable skill. The GPT can fail or give you wrong shit and you have no way to confirm it, it's a black box.

    At least googling you develop a sense of what makes a good source and what doesn't
