The increasing use of artificial intelligence in our lives is changing education. Three universities in Australia adopted a landmark policy – to allow students to use AI in assessments. Tests will take place under strict conditions. A professor said: "Instead of banning students from using such programs, we aim to assist [them] to use digital tools to support learning." The Internet is full of AI text generators. These can be used to write essays that look authentic enough to fool examiners. The content from these AI tools evade detection by even the smartest anti-plagiarism tools.

Artificial Intelligence is posing challenges to exam fairness. AI is the biggest disruptor since calculators in maths tests. The latest dilemma for schools comes from a language processing website called ChatGPT. This can create authentic, human-like content on any subject in seconds. Teachers worry that students will use it to write essays. Another professor said teachers needed to embrace AI. He said: "You cannot stop it. The alternative is the Middle Ages – going to pen and paper." He said universities needed to change with the times.
