Lucinda McKnight | Senior Lecturer in Education (Pedagogy and Curriculum) School of Education, Faculty of Arts and Education, Deakin University

In this video, Lucinda McKnight, Senior Lecturer in Education (Pedagogy and Curriculum) at Deakin University, discusses her specialisation in the writing discipline and how AI-based writing is causing a paradigm shift in the role of writing in our professional and academic lives.

Referencing the rapid advancement of neural language generators between 2019 and 2020 that use ‘deep learning’ to produce human-like text, Lucinda explores how a future of written work authored by ‘bots’ or ‘AI writers’ is already upon us and that institutions need to begin a dialogue to address what it means for student authorship, authenticity and fairness. 

But as James Thorley asks, can institutions change their thinking and assessment fast enough that they won't get outflanked by the inexorable rise of AI writing? 

Watch the episode to hear Lucinda’s early predictions.
