The Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) question paper leak case could indicate the first time in the country that candidates cheated the system by using ChatGPT.

After accessing the exam questions for recruiting assistant executive engineers (AEE) and divisional accounts officers (DAO), the special investigation team (SIT) probing into the breach found that one of the accused used the latest artificial intelligence (AI) technology to retrieve answers. He then used Bluetooth earbuds to communicate answers to candidates as they were completing the exams.

This could be one of the first instances in the nation where aspirants for office in government have been detected using ChatGPT to cheat on an examination.

Cheating Using ChatGPT:

According to the report, the SIT asked a divisional engineer of Telangana State Northern Power Distribution Company Limited in Peddapalli questions to learn more information. Poola Ramesh, who devised a plan to give seven candidates who were taking two exams earlier this year (on January 22 and February 26), answers from ChatGPT, was found by the team.

Ten minutes after the exam, Ramesh seems to have used ChatGPT to write down answers on the stolen question paper. Allegedly, each of the seven candidates agreed to pay Rs. 40 lakh in exchange for passing the examinations. Although he did not use ChatGPT for the exam on March 5, Ramesh helped other candidates in cheating.

The article states, quoting a police officer, “Ramesh sold the leaked question paper to more than 30 candidates for 25 lahks to 30 lakh each.” He hasn’t been arrested yet, according to the article.

Given that generative AI tools remain available for free and are relatively simple to use, there is a growing concern. The availability of apps for tools like ChatGPT and Microsoft Bing makes it easier for users to access information on the go. Although generative AI technologies have many benefits, there are concerns regarding job replacement and exam and assignment cheating. Concerns about students using ChatGPT to complete assignments have also been raised by some universities. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, has released a tool for helping with plagiarism, but the platform has many miles to cover.

Similarly to this, other experts, like Tesla CEO Elon Musk, wished for a pause in the development of generative AI tools. Without the involvement of the government, that is improbable. Pioneers of generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools like Google, Microsoft, and OpenAI argue products that like Bard, Bing, and ChatGPT can make life better. The companies also expect setbacks but claim that’s with any other cutting-edge technology.
