Further details can be obtained from the website: The bidders taking part in the auction must present their identity card Gaetana Aquilina For the Registrar of Civil Courts and Tribunals tribution. The resulting text has subtly different distributional qualities from human text." Several tools are being devel- oped to help people identify whether text has been gener- ated by an AI. One of these tools, GPTZero, aims to iden- tify whether someone used ChatGPT to write a piece of text. "I have yet to see a proper eval- uation of this tool. Informal re- ports in the press have suggest- ed that the success of GPTZero is variable, and in part depend- ent on the length of the text on which it is run." But beyond fluency, Gatt warned that the tool can some- times generate fluent text that is factually incorrect. This is because, while the model has an impressive stock of knowl- edge, the knowledge is learned through language without ac- cess to the world of perception and experience. "Without some form of attri- bution, or other fact-checking mechanism, I think it should be used with caution. Perhaps what will ultimately give the model away is its grasp of the truth." Another shakeup for education Alex Grech, who teaches at the University of Malta's media de- partment, said that ChatGPT is a game-changer for education, but it follows a longer history of tech tools that have been help- ing students in their essays and assessments for years. "I'm old enough to remember the hysteria with Wikipedia, taking laptops into lecture halls and whether students should rely on open education resourc- es - or use calculators. As dis- ruptive technologies go, this is different. Access to a chatbot trained on large language mod- els enables us to use normal lan- guage queries and commands to produce seemingly personalised results." Meanwhile, education systems worldwide have been caught napping, Grech said, and things are likely to get chaotic in the next months. Grech added that ChatGPT opens a Pandora's box since it can't distinguish between truth and falsehood. It's output will not always be factual or trust- worthy, and any essay answers written by ChatGPT could in- clude inaccurate statements. On top of this, the chatbot cannot take into account bias. It might make stuff up, write racially-insensitive content or misogynistic things. "Then again, we know some- thing about chaos in the EdTech world. Just remember the panic in January 2020 when teaching and learning pivoted to emer- gency online instruction over- night and people started blink- ing at other people's bedrooms." Regardless, Grech said that he will be using ChatGPT with his first-year communication students on project work. "We must adapt our learning envi- ronments where we retain the best of older practices while shifting to embrace new tech- nologies - in the same way that calculators and laptops were eventually embraced as a means of augmenting human capacity in different disciplines." "In the short term, ChatGPT is likely to shake the trees of as- sessment and get us to question the value of long-standing, or- thodox teaching methods. In the fullness of time, learning how to use AI/LLM technologies to assist writing and facilitate much-needed critical thinking may well become an essential skill set for young people. They may well use it as a shortcut to code and get things done faster. Ironically, it may take a disrup- tive technological development like the chatbot to force the bas- tions of education to do some soul-searching and adopt more deeply human approaches to teaching and learning. " Can ChatGPT take over journalism? As part of this story, we asked ChatGPT to write an article about ChatGPT using the com- ments we received from each expert. This article, acting as our 'control' experiment, was written by a human journalist in the MaltaToday newsroom. The human-written story was drafted before we submitted the notes into ChatGPT. The tool did what it does best: condensing information and providing a well-written arti- cle. However, it limited itself to a face-value interpretation of the answers at hand. When we read and interpreted the com- ments provided to us, we found a very different common thread that went beyond the threats of ChatGPT to education. We did what the tool could not do – take the human approach and engage with the content on a more critical level. This tool could be revolution- ary for our press statements and copywriting, but journalists can still provide some value by en- gaging critically with the world around them.
