L’artificial intelligence is perceived as a real breakthrough for some, and as a danger for others. Also, the prestigious Sciences Po school announced on Friday January 27 the prohibition for its students to use ChatGPT. Students who do not respect this rule even expose themselves to sanctions that can go as far as “exclusion from the establishment, or even from higher education”.
In a letter addressed to all students and teachers, the management of Sciences Po announces that “the use, without explicit mention, of ChatGPT at Sciences Po, or of any other tool using AI is, the exception of pedagogical use supervised by a teacher, for the moment strictly prohibited during the production of written or oral work by students”.
Sciences Po is the leading institution of higher education in France to officially ban this artificial intelligence.
The question of plagiarism at the heart of the reflection
The ChatGPT artificial intelligence has spread like wildfire in the educational world since last November. “This tool, which uses artificial intelligence (AI), strongly questions education and research actors around the world on the subject of fraud in general, and plagiarism in particular”, estimates the direction of Sciences Po, in the letter sent to the students, whoseFrance Media Agency (AFP) obtained a copy.

“Some states have also already banned its use in their schools and universities,” the statement continued.
As early as mid-December, just a few weeks after the tool was made available by the Californian start-up OpenAI, eight Australian universities announced that they were modifying their exams and considering that the use of AI by students was akin to to cheating.
