For context, in my data science master course, one of my classmate submit his assignment report using chatgpt and got almost 80%. Though, my report wasn’t the best, still bit sad, isn’t it?

Sounds like you need to try harder and practice more. You're right, it is a bit sad - your classmate will be doing himself a disservice in the future.

And this is why there are so many posts here from hiring managers who say they interview MSDS grads who don’t even know the basics.

It’s not that the MSDS programs are all bad, it’s that a not insignificant number of MSDS students are lazy and cheat their way through instead of taking the time to learn the material. But the university wants their money so they don’t kick them out.

I say this as an MSDS grad who busted my ass to actually learn the material but I heard of many cases of my classmates handing off all their code, quiz answers, etc, to their friends who took a class after them. And then guess which classmates have struggled to pass interviews and get offers. Merely having a piece of paper isn’t enough to land a job.

>still bit sad, isn’t it?

I don't think so.

It means the assignment was well enough designed to answer the questions without bullshit like needing to know what the specific lecturer **wants** to hear. I think that's a good thing.

It means IT is at a point where it can ingest unstructured data well enough to do these boring things. I think that's a good thing.

It also means you don't have the basics down well enough yet. That sucks, but it's easy enough to fix that. Your classmate won't.

The real take away here is that you got 30% on an assignment. Focus on your own education and forget about how your classmates are also not learning anything.

"ChatGPT got  **a** 50% **higher score** on **a** data science assignment than **I did**. What’s next?

Sad? Perhaps, but hardly surprising.

Chatgpt, like many AI tools, exists to complement human performance.

Imo, the main failure here is that you didn't use chatgpt to check your work before submitting.

I use it all the time, mostly to check my code logic. It's unreal for this.

You're in an easy class.

I've used ChatGPT on 10 programming issues and it's literally never had a working answer. It's not even complicated stuff either.

If you have an extremely clear input and output, it's probably effective. But if there is a little bit of ambiguity, it doesn't work.

ChatGPT is not perfect. It will suggests functions that don't actually exist, have different signatures or don't really work together. It can take longer to fix up code from ChatGPT than doing it outright yourself.   


Still, it's not a bad resource besides searching on google or stackoverflow to get started on a project or look for suggestions what else could be done. I would not count it  as cheating to use it in that way.   


Next time use ChatGPT as a resource and combined with your own smarts get 100%.

I used chatgpt on 1 of the 10 questions on an assignment, and that was the only wrong answer on my quiz
