Rector introduced University of Tartu guidelines on using AI chatbots to members of The Guild

From 26 to 27 October, the General Assembly of The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities took place in Oslo. Toomas Asser, Rector of the University of Tartu, also participated and made a presentation about using chatbots in teaching and studies.

The rector told the universities in the network about what has been done at the University of Tartu to ensure that the use of chatbots in teaching and studies is unambiguously understood and regulated: for example, training courses for teaching staff, the creation of guidelines for the use of chatbots, and free licences for Chat Bing Enterprise for those who wish to use it. In addition, he outlined further plans to help streamline the use of chatbots: the introduction of new plagiarism detection software, the creation of online materials for academic staff and students, and hackathons to showcase the potential of chatbots.

This spring, the University of Tartu issued guidelines for using chatbots in teaching and studies and encourages students and academic staff to make informed use of artificial intelligence.

The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities was founded in 2016, with the University of Tartu among its founding members. Currently, the network includes 21 universities. Rector of the University of Tartu Toomas Asser is a member of The Guild’s Board of Directors.
