Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world around us, and its presence in higher education is likely going to transform the way we teach and learn.   

To help faculty, staff, and students navigate this new landscape, Cybersecurity for You (C4U) has just released two brand-new activities on generative AI technologies. One new activity, titled “OSU & You: Where Does Information Go When Used with AI”, will help you understand what happens to data that you give an AI system and steps you can take to protect your personal information and Ohio State’s institutional data.  

The other activity, geared towards students, “Is ChatGPT… Cheating?”, focuses on considerations you should take before using generative AI tools, like ChatGPT, Bard, and others for academic assignments.  

More activities focusing on different aspects of AI will be released later this quarter, so be sure you check back to see what’s new!
