Artificial intelligence (AI) has the power to rapidly generate fluent language, producing sentences that copy well human structures. For example, ChatGPT has shown ability to generate structured sentences by mimicking the statistical patterns of language in a huge database of text curated from the Internet. This has created disruption in various sectors such as legal or academia. The spread of this new phenomenon is raising questions about the future of law and education and this session will be exploring such questions.
