An imaginary conversation between Chomsky and ChatGPT: technology in the service of education or high-tech plagiarism?
Noam Chomsky is a world-renowned intellectual and linguist known for his contributions to the fields of linguistics, cognitive psychology, education, and political activism. In a recent interview, Noam Chomsky shared his thoughts on GPT-3 as a technological phenomenon that pertains to the current crisis in society and especially in contemporary education. In this paper, we imagine and test how GPT-3 itself, through ChatGPT, would “respond” to Chomsky’s philosophical judgments. To do this, as we did in another article, we will include the prompt with Chomsky’s reflection before GPT-3’s response.
