This is my second year in the Vex Scene. I was just wondering if you could use a text-based artificial intelligence (ex: ChatGPT). This isn’t for my team but I was at a tournament and I heard chatter that their programmer used ChatGPT for his Skills script. I’m also a programmer and I hate when people use ChatGPT for programming, so I wanted to check how legal it is. This doesn’t seem legal but I don’t know.
Really? Why so?
ChatGPT and similar models have been revolutionary for a hobbyist programmer like myself. I can throw it errors that I’m facing and it will explain what’s going wrong so I can learn without spending an hour a day on StackOverflow. It does so quite well an impressive amount of the time.
I don’t know how the RECF would enforce a no AI assistance policy. AI is now an industry standard tool, so surely it is something students should know how to use properly and effectively.
I would think <g4> might answer that or <R2> …
Simple way to test either - “hey kid, write me a quick program to … for your robot.” and “oh, the inter web is down…”
They’re going to be at the tournament I have on Saturday, I’ll try that lol.
I probably should have worded that better. I hate it when people use it for competitions like this. Same with game jams, it just doesn’t feel right, I don’t know. I mean, I will occasionally use it for my projects, but I am against using it in a competitive state like this.
and yet, they don’t … Trust me, I’ve been presented embarrassing uses of AI that really show why <G1>, <G4> and <R2> exists.
Maybe this ties in quite nicely with the other thread about the programming tests reportedly being conducted at events in China.
Did this at Iowa State Robotics yesterday, he was caught red-handed. Thank you for the idea.
