Student Sparks Debate by Revealing That They Use AI to Write Essays

Artificial intelligence has improved at an alarming rate over the past few years. Anybody with the most basic of technical knowledge is only a few clicks away from all kinds of weird and wonderful tidbits brought to us by the wonders of robotic thinking. While there’s no doubt that there are benefits to these advancements, we are also getting to a point where they are upending some of the things that we take for granted.

This trend has been revealed in a recent Reddit post, in which a high school student claims that they have started to write their homework assignments using AI — and that they were even making money by doing it for their classmates. Not everybody was as much of a fan of this new method for school work as they were, not least because it has some bad implications for what they are actually learning. Who needs an education anyway?
