Is the use of AI-based software for your course/exam an (un)authorized aid?

* Allowed is the use of AI-based software for writing support, such as Grammarly. However, it is mandatory to indicate the use of any AI-based software in your written work.

* If you use  AI-based software for text and content generation such as ChatGPT  in your reports, presentations, or any other written text, it is mandatory to 1) verify the information generated and 2) add all relevant references for the text, data, and AI-based software.

*During in-class discussions, we will challenge the results and insights from your presentations and written work.


How to indicate the permitted use of AI-based software?

* You need to provide indication in a footnote for the corresponding sections.


*add a detailed appendix with specific "prompts" and the responses from the text generation software.


What will your initial steps be for any suspected cases of unauthorized use of AI-based software?

* Note that in case of suspicious cases, we will set up an additional individual oral audit interview with the student.
