I really feel for the faculty who have to deal with student plagiarism through ChatGPT-likes. CNN has this article today on telling the difference between AI- and human-generated content.
Chat GPT is a notorious plagiarizer:
“The authors believe one dataset contained over 290,000 book titles from ‘shadow libraries’ like Library Genesis and Sci-Hub, which illegally publish thousands of copyrighted books.”
It even steals comedy.
This goes back to the original concern about sampling. How will we sample and yet remain original?
All will be a whirlpool, swirling away the authors and centralizing “creativity.” This is another sphere where we continue to surrender the human and lose a little more of ourselves.
