  • ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot that uses natural language processing to generate human-like conversational dialogue
  • ChatGPT is being used by various individuals, from novelists to high school students, to produce written content, including articles, social media posts, essays, code, and emails

The use of ChatGPT and similar AI technology has impacted the concept of plagiarism, as the AI-driven model can generate text without clearly identifying a single author. This raises questions about the future of literature and the role of AI as a co-author or muse for writers. Some writers have embraced A.I. as a supplemental mental database that can provide inspiration and support in the creative process. A case in point is Sheila Heti’s short story “According to Alice,” which features a conversation between Heti and a customizable chatbot named Alice. Alice, programmed on the Chai A.I. platform, evokes human-like language and engages in philosophical discussions, challenging the traditional notion of divine inspiration. While AI technology offers new possibilities for writers, it also raises concerns about authenticity and the essence of creativity. As a former English teacher, the author of the article reflects on the impact of technology on writing and the availability of tools like ChatGPT for identifying plagiarism. The proliferation of AI technology in the literary world blurs the boundary between human creativity and machine-generated content.
