Imagine sitting in an airplane that makes its way through the skies without a pilot, controlled only by a computer. For many of us, this would be an unsettling idea, as it involves fundamental trust and the assumption of responsibility.

Instinctively, we tend to trust a person more than a machine. It gives us a sense of security to know that an experienced person in the cockpit is in charge. This need for human responsibility is not limited to flying.
It extends to all areas of our lives, including writing, calculating, acting, learning and teaching. It is a social responsibility that we as humans must uphold at all costs.
I therefore appeal to all of us not to relinquish the role of pilots in our respective fields. The wheel must remain in our hands and not be left to the machines. While technologies such as AI should support us in our work, we must not lose sight of our core responsibility and social obligation.
When writing texts, it is essential that we take personal responsibility for what we write. If this assumption of responsibility is missing, we can no longer trust each other.
Don't let an AI like ChatGPT write a text and then submit it unchecked as your own work.
Don't simply skim a text created by ChatGPT and submit it without making any significant contributions of your own.
Don't simply modify an AI-generated text and submit it as your own work.
Do use ChatGPT to create a basic structure and to formulate your own main arguments. Then mandatorily
• think through the text critically,
• correct errors,
• complete it with your own thoughts,
• carefully cite any sources for the main arguments and
• submit the text under your own responsibility.
So let's stand up together for the trustworthy use of AI in writing and uphold our role as responsible authors.
