About this Guide

ChatGPT has been making headlines in the news since it launched in late 2022. ChatGPT, or Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a form of artificial intelligence in which users can interface with machines that can "learn" from their language and interactions, creating the effect of the user having a conversation with a machine.


The launch of ChatGPT by the company OpenAI brought along with it a flood of questions about its benefits, its shortcomings, and its potential for misuse, particularly in academic settings. 


This LibGuide is designed to answer some basic questions about ChatGPT and artificial intelligence and provide educators and students with an understanding of how this new technology will impact education going forward.
