This raises the question: where do you draw the line between editing and writing? Photo by Jakub Porzycki/NurPhoto via Getty Images One of the world's most prestigious machine learning conferences has banned authors from using AI tools like ChatGPT to write scientific papers, triggering a debate about the role of AI-generated text in academia. The International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) announced the policy earlier this week, stating, “Papers that include text generated from a large-scale language model (LLM) such as ChatGPT are prohibited unless the produced text is presented as a part of the paper's experimental analysis.” The news sparked widespread discussion on social media, with AI academics and researchers defending and criticizing the policy. The conference's organizers responded by publishing a longer statement explaining their thinking. (The ICML responded to requests from The Verge for comment by directing us to this same statement.) According to the ICML, the rise of publicly accessible AI language models like ChatGPT — a general-purpose AI chatbot that launched on the web last November — represents an “exciting” development that nevertheless comes with “unanticipated consequences [and] unanswered questions.” The ICML says these include questions about who owns the output of such systems (they are trained on public data, which is usually collected without consent and sometimes regurgitates this information verbatim) and whether text and images […]
