Despite how widespread kids' use of ChatGPT is, only 23% of those surveyed said their school or uni had spoken to them about it.

The use of ChatGPT to cheat on exam papers is becoming an increasing concern for schools.

In New York, the AI tool cannot even be accessed by any school device or internet network, in a bid to clampdown on cheaters.

Jenna Lyle, a New York education department spokesperson, said: "Due to concerns about negative impacts on student learning, and concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of content, access to ChatGPT is restricted on New York City Public Schools' networks and devices."

It uses countless data points and real-world text information to write answers and respond to users in a human-like way.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk even weighed in on ChatGPT, warning people that it could 'go haywire and kill everyone'.
