According to the Guardian, the International Baccalaureate has said that students could use the chatbot when writing essays, but had to cite its responses like any other source. The IB sees the development of chatbots as a unique learning opportunity, treating knowledge obtained through it like any other material. The IB argues that in the future, understanding the context, quality, bias, and creativity of an essay will be more important than the writing itself.
