Malaysia will not block the use of ChatGPT by students, according to the Higher Education Minister, Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled.
As reported, Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled, during his recent visit to Universiti Sarawak Malaysia, emphasized that the government will not prevent the usage of ChatGPT as it will become the norm, although some countries do not allow its use.
He stressed that Malaysia will not block the use of ChatGPT, but it must comply with the established guidelines.
Malaysian higher education institutions have already issued guidelines regarding the use of ChatGPT. "The circumstances under which it can or cannot be used must all follow the relevant guidelines," he said.
Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled believes that in this era, the use of ChatGPT is inevitable, and if ChatGPT and other AI technologies are adopted as tools in the learning process, they can be beneficial.
However, the appropriate scope and context must be determined.
At the same time, Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled stated that Malaysia allows the use of ChatGPT but ensures its proper usage to avoid potential issues.
Earlier, there was a heated discussion when a federal judge in Manhattan berated two lawyers, accusing them of being deceived by ChatGPT, which resulted in fabricated legal research being included in their court documents.
