Plagiarism stands as the exact opposite to what education stands for. The ability to speak and write your mind out and make it known to the world, what quality of head you carry on your shoulders. Creativity, knowledge and acumen seamlessly merge in what you write. The way one wrote was his trademark. Writing styles have for long been discussed and debated. The outcome of hard core research at least in liberal arts were dependent on original findings and its narrative and hence an equally original writing. When knowledge shifted to the public domain, the master of short cut moved on to the plug and play mode, what can called cut, copy and paste age of abridged knowledge.

This operation was made so simple. The added advantage was that was hardly any chance to getting caught when such operations started. The Google Search Age, can be termed as the age of digital enlightenment, where doing an original work was getting despised; why all that hard work when easy options were readily available at the click of a mouse. More than anybody else the academic fraternity; the researchers, teaching faculty and the students, took to the golden goose of knowledge lock, stock and barrel. Reading the original; books, texts, research work, thesis, articles, manuscripts etc were slowly consigned to history. Understandably, plagiarism raised its ugly head.

Today plagiarism rules the roost, notwithstanding all the tools, that are being put into to use to curtail, stem or stall it. It has it got into our DNA. Whatever field you are in, but who would like to get into academic regimen by choice? With ChatGPT hitting the market, the super golden age of plagiarism just descended on this planet. Grave concerns were being raised about its likely misuse, ethical issues and what impact it would have on the students, leave aside other similar victims. Will this knowledge stick? In the midst of the celebration of ChatGPT and gloom of its negative impact on student emanating out of it being a master tool of plagiarism, a Princeton student has built ChatGPT Detection App to fight AI plagiarism.

Named GPTZero, the app seems to an ideal antidote of the fear that ChatGPT will lead to waves of generic sounding, mostly AI written essays. ”Princeton student Edward Tian devoted a portion of his holiday to writing GPTZero – an application that can identify text authored by artificial intelligence.” On 2nd of Jan 2023 he posted a couple of videos as a proof of concept demonstrating GPTZero’s capabilities. Two straight faced results is making it stick. ”It determined that human a New Yorker article.” Going a step further, “it correctly identified ChatGPT as the author of a Facebook post. Tian’s motivation was to stall AI plagiarism in the bud, an effective tool for sure is the best answer. He tweeted that it was unlikely “that high school teachers would want students using ChatGPT to write their history essays.”
