In a bold move that has sparked widespread debate within academic circles, Michigan Tech is considering replacing all of its professors with the advanced AI technology, specifically ChatGPT. The proposal would mark a significant shift in the traditional higher education landscape, raising questions about the role of technology in teaching and learning.

 ChatGPT, based on OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 architecture, is a state-of-the-art language model capable of generating human-like text and engaging in meaningful conversations across various topics. Its ability to process vast amounts of data and adapt to user input makes it an attractive candidate for automating educational content delivery.

At first glance, the idea seems futuristic and efficient– AI doesn’t need breaks, sleep or vacations. It can tirelessly deliver lectures 24/7 and is always available if a student has a question. AI also holds no bias when it comes to their students; each student will receive the same reply if asked the same question.

Another benefit to this new teaching style will be the increase in parking on campus, as there will no longer be a need for faculty parking lots. Michigan Tech plans to implement this improvement next semester.
