Generative AI (Artificial Intelligence) describes algorithms that can be used to create new content including text, audio, code, images, and videos using machine learning from data patterns.
Examples of generative AI:
Before making use of any generative AI tool (such as Chat GPT) for class assignments, consult your instructor and your syllabus for guidance on class policies regarding using, quoting, and citing generative AI.
Some possible examples of how you might use generative AI include:
Whichever citation style you use, you need to cite sources that contributed to your ideas, written work, images, video or other products you create. That means including:
"Prompt Given to ChatBot" prompt. Title of the AI tool, version of AI tool, Chatbot Publisher, Date content was generated, URL for the tool or conversation
"Describe the symbolism of Anne's red hair in Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery" prompt. ChatGPT, 24 May version, OpenAI, 12 June 2023, https://chat.openai.com/share/6850690a-1480-406f-939d-856d171af11d
Name/Author of the Chatbot/Model. (Year of the version you used). Title the model (version of the model) [Type of model]. URL
OpenAI. (2023). ChatGPT (May 24 version) [Large language model]. https://chat.openai.com/chat
The Chicago Manual of Style recommends that you cite the generative AI tool as a footnote but not list it in a bibliography, treating the exchange like a personal communication.
