The implications of ChatGPT in teaching and learning

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a transformative force driving the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The tech empowers us to analyse more efficiently complex data, integrate information, and assist us in decision-making with unparalleled precision. In the realm of education, AI-driven tools are not only revolutionising traditional teaching methods but also reconfiguring the essence of learning as they transform the way educators and students interact and engage with each other and their work, pushing conventional pedagogical boundaries.

The highly-anticipated OpenAI chatbot ChatGPT was unveiled on November 30, 2022 in a monumental leap toward technological advancement. It swiftly amassed a user base of over 1 million within its inaugural week and has since surpassed the 100 million user mark. This uptake demonstrates the widespread enthusiasm and intrigue surrounding this groundbreaking innovation.
