ChatGPT has frightened high-school teachers, who are worrying that students may use it to cheat on writing assignments. However, the AI-powered program is of greater concern to Universities. At the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton School of Business, professor Christian Terwiesch has been raising the alarm on what such A.I. tools mean for MBA programs.
This week, Terwiesch released a research paper in which he showcased how ChatGPT performed on the final exam of a typical MBA core course, Operations Management.
The A.I. chatbot, he wrote, “does an amazing job at basic operations management and process analysis questions including those that are based on case studies.”
It did have shortcomings, he noted, including being able to handle “more advanced process analysis questions.”
But ChatGPT, he determined, “would have received a B to B- grade on the exam.”
It has also “performed well in the preparation of legal documents and some believe that the next generation of this technology might even be able to pass the bar exam,” he noted.
Imagine what ChatGPT 10 Could Do
Of course, ChatGPT is “just in its infancy,” as billionaire entrepreneur Mark Cuban noted this week in an interview with Not a Bot, an A.I. newsletter. He added, “Imagine what GPT 10 is going to look like.”
