Report: “New York City’s Public Schools Reverse Their Ban on ChatGPT — Admitting it Had Been ‘Knee-Jerk Fear”
From Business Insider:
The New York City public school system is reversing its ban on ChatGPT.
The NYC Department of Education initially banned the AI bot back in January — less than two months after the tool was released — citing its potential for “negative impacts on student learning, and concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of content,” Insider previously reported.
In an op-ed published on Thursday on education news site Chalkbeat, David Banks, the head of New York’s public schools, admitted that the bot was banned, in part, out of “knee-jerk fear.”
