Chomsky called chatGPT “essentially a high-tech plagiarism” that makes learning difficult because it does no more to develop language and cognitive skills than plagiarism.

“There have been programs for years to help professors identify plagiarized essays. Now it’s getting harder because it’s easier to plagiarize, but that’s about the only contribution to education I can think of,” he added.
