The incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) into the educational field is revolutionising conventional teaching and learning methods. AI’s adaptability and personalised approaches cater to the diverse needs of students, leading to improved overall learning outcomes. Moreover, AI streamlines administrative tasks, providing educators with more time and resources to engage in meaningful interactions with students. As AI continues to evolve, it possesses the potential to create an education system that is more inclusive, effective, and responsive to the rapidly changing world. Among the most versatile AI tools making waves in education are chatbots, with ChatGPT leading the way based on its advanced GPT-3.5 architecture. The adaptability and versatility of ChatGPT offer immense potential to revolutionise the learning experience for both educators and students. However, as we embrace this transformation, it becomes necessary to address ethical concerns and ensure equitable access to AI technologies to preserve its positive impact in the educational sector.
