AI systems may soon be able to generate texts that can pass for human work. Such technology has many positives, but could also result in widespread generation of false texts (including fake news).
AI-powered text generators are becoming increasingly easy to access. Rather than banning their use by students, educators should think about incorporating such tools into their curriculums.

The best way to compare emissions from electric cars is to assess all phases of a life cycle analysis.
In New Zealand, where more than 80% of electricity is renewable, the carbon footprint of electric cars is 62% lower than that of fossil cars. But their lithium battery has other environmental impacts.
During the Pliocene, up to one third of Antarctica’s ice sheet melted, causing sea-level rise of 20 metres.
New research shows that warming by more than 2°C could be a tipping point for Antarctica's ice sheets, resulting in widespread meltdown and changes to the world's shorelines for centuries to come.
Eating less meat is one change many of us can make to reduce our contribution to climate change.
