Many schools, including HKBU are concerned about how the emergence of new Large Language Models like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Alibaba's Tongyi Qianwen will affect the educational setting. Concerns about increased academic dishonesty, the spread of misinformation, and disruption to pedagogical method need to be balanced against potential uses for facilitating research, improving learning comprehension and creative expression. This dialogue between three of BU's philosophers of technology will discuss these and other issues as well as concerns brought forward by the student body, faculty and administration about the ethical use of LLMs in the future of education.
