Students can now use generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools such as ChatGPT to complete their assignments, from essays and presentation slides to computing codes and maths problems. I cannot help but wonder if my days as an educator are numbered.

I am shocked and awed by the ease of use and capability of these generative AI tools, which use large language models to understand and respond to questions, generating humanlike responses in natural language.

ChatGPT took the world by storm with over 100 million users just two months after its launch, making it the fastest-growing consumer app ever. It can quickly answer questions, write essays and poems, and even generate computer code.
