The seven-year-old, who has not been named, was reportedly struggling to complete their book report on “Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants” when they decided to seek help from an AI chat bot. The bot, using pre-programmed responses and information from online sources, was able to craft a well-written book report in a matter of seconds.
The student’s teacher was reportedly impressed by the book report and gave the student a top grade. But it was when the student’s work was shared on social media that things really took off. The book report quickly went viral, with literary agents and publishing houses clamouring to sign the young student to a book deal.
The student’s book, titled “A Comprehensive Analysis of the Socioeconomic Implications of the Implementation of the Modified Adjusted Gross Income Provision in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017: An Empirical Study,” is set to be released next year and has already received advance praise from critics.
“I never expected this to happen,” the student said in a recent interview. “I was just looking for a way to avoid doing this book report. Anyway, I’m getting a lot of money.”
The use of AI in education has been a controversial topic, with some critics arguing that it undermines the value of hard work and critical thinking. But the success of this student may change the way we think about using technology in the classroom.
