Generative AI

What is Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI)? 

Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) is smart technology that is trained to learn, make decisions, solve problems and create. AI can produce new text, images, videos or audio clips, computer applications, code or data as instructed by a user’s prompts or requests.  


Risks and Limitations of Generative AI 

Did you know AI generated content can: 

  • Be inaccurate, creating false, fake or misleading content. 
  • Be inconsistent. 
  • Be out of date. 
  • Reinforce stereotypes or contain bias 
  • Breach copyright. 

Generative AI and the Gordon 

The Gordon permits the use Generative AI in student learning to provide inspiration, practice, guidance, broadening knowledge and deepening understanding. However, in assessments, any use of AI must be treated like any other resource, ensuring appropriate acknowledgement (referencing) including a statement outlining where AI was used and to what extent. It is a breach of Academic Integrity to pass off AI generated content as your own.
