Malaysian university to adopt ChatGPT after receiving green light from Ministry of Higher Education

AI is here to stay, whether we accept it or not.

The introduction of ChatGPT has revolutionized the way people work and learn, forcing the Malaysian government to recognize the essential role of ChatGPT in academia.

According to Higher Education Minister Mohamed Khalid Nordin, local university students will be given permission to use the AI ​​tool.

Nevertheless, he stressed that students must follow the established guidelines set by the ministry.

“Even if we reject ChatGPT, its existence will continue. The Ministry of Higher Education has already issued guidelines.” He told reporters during a visit to Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) yesterday..

The Minister also acknowledged the unavoidable nature of ChatGPT, but stressed the importance of identifying the circumstances in which its use is appropriate and in which it is not.

This is especially important because the tool has the ability to generate academic papers autonomously without any input from students.

The Minister noted a recent case in the United States where two lawyers used ChatGPT to include a fabricated case in a court filing, saying: I was referring to a case that does not exist. ”

Therefore, comprehensive guidelines need to be established to determine the appropriate situations for its use, and vice versa.

In March of this year, the Ministry of Higher Education had already announced efforts to create guidelines for the use of these AI-powered tools.
