The University of Hong Kong has lifted its ban on the use of generative artificial intelligence (AI) for learning, including ChatGPT.
According to Hong Kong public broadcaster RTHK on Wednesday, HKU Vice-Chancellor Ian Holliday made the announcement after faculty members tried out generative AI technology on a trial basis and found that the tool could be used in a fair manner.
As a result, students at HKU will be able to utilize generative AI, such as ChatGPT and DALL-E from the US OpenAI, in their studies.
However, the university has decided to limit the number of uses.
“We want our students to be pioneers and leaders in generative AI, not just learn how to use it,” the university explained.
Earlier, in February of this year, the University of Hong Kong informed students in an email that they were “prohibited from utilizing ChatGPT or similar tools in their assignments until there is a broader discussion to determine how to integrate AI chatbot technology into their studies.”
Before the University of Hong Kong, Lingnan University in Hong Kong lifted its AI ban, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong left it up to individual professors to decide whether to use AI.
As with China, 카지노사이트넷 ChatGPT is currently not available in Hong Kong and can only be accessed through workarounds such as virtual private networks (VPNs).
