Bryan Alexander comments on the AI-detected plagiarism scandal curently playing out in U.S. universities after hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackerman found evidence leading to the resignation of Harvard president Claudine Gay. There are the obvious political overtones, but it's worth wondering what such an effort would reveal if pursued to its logical conclusion. "If every faculty member is held to the current plagiarism standards of their own institutions, and universities enforce their own rules, they would likely have to terminate the substantial majority of their faculty members," Ackerman commented. I wonder how true this is. I wonder how true it is of elite university graduates generally. Image: Axios.
