Opinion and Recommendations of the Dean's Advisory Board for the Use of Artificial Intelligence

The faculty Dean´s Advisory Board have issued a statement and recommendations on artificial intelligence. Read by clicking on this news item.



Artificial intelligence (AI) tools, including generative language models and chatbots (such as ChatGPT), represent one of the possible sources of information for teaching and academic work, and the Faculty of Arts of Charles University does not explicitly prohibit their use. However, any output generated by AI tools that is used in a seminar, qualification or research paper must be properly cited by the author, as well as other sources of information used. The passing off of AI-generated output as the results of one's own work is plagiarism and will be treated as such and sanctioned in accordance with the applicable principles of UK Research Ethics. The use of AI tools is not permissible in the verification of student knowledge except where this is explicitly permitted in the examination/credit conditions. Misuse of AI tools in the verification of student knowledge will be considered as cheating and will be sanctioned according to the applicable rules.


The management of the Faculty of Arts of Charles University recommends that the approach of teachers to the verification of students' knowledge be modified so that increased attention is paid to the written outputs that are required for study checks. It is recommended that the written work to be included in the assessment be assigned so that it is written directly during the examination to minimize the risk of using AI tools or third party assistance in its processing. The authentic performance of the student in the knowledge check should be essential to the assessment. When checking written work, it is recommended to use tools that allow the identification of AI-generated text (e.g. GPTZero, etc.). The above refers primarily to the use of generative language models (e.g. ChatGPT etc.), not to text translators or proofreaders. A discussion workshop will be organized on the use of AI in teaching and academic work and the potential and risks associated with its use in the sciences, and the faculty leadership will monitor this issue on an ongoing basis.
