As educators debate whether students should be allowed to use artificial intelligence for assignments, one professor told Fox News that teachers themselves are using the tech to help with their lessons.

"I know faculty who are using ChatGPT to help write syllabi and to write exams," a University of California, Berkeley professor of computer science, Hany Farid, told Fox News. "I've seen professors using it to help design courses, write exam problems, write homework problems."

"It is both an enabling and a potentially problematic technology," he continued. "But will it disrupt education? Yeah..."

Hany Farid is a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences and the School of Information at UC Berkeley and a senior advisor to the Counter Extremism Project.
