(from Inside Higher Ed) The University of Michigan, Harvard University, Washington University, the University of California, Irvine and UC San Diego are among a small number of institutions that have created their own versions of ChatGPT for student and faculty use over the last year. For the universities, it’s a way to overcome concerns about equity, privacy and intellectual property rights. The newest version of ChatGPT costs $20 per month, while older versions remain free. The newer models have more up-to-date information, which could give students who can afford it a leg up. While AI models trained on university research may not be as up to date, the universities can control the privacy of the data.
