Can ChatGPT really revolutionise the way physics students solve problems?

ChatGPT is the artificial intelligence large language model (LLM) chatbot that is a buzzword right now in higher education for its ability to explain concepts and answer questions in a conversational manner. But can ChatGPT revolutionise the way physics students solve problems now, and how can educators navigate this shifting landscape?

Its ability to index large stores of data to generate a response enables it to be a great tool in solving even complex physics problems, making it a powerful aid for physicists and researchers.

While many are excited about the opportunities for higher education ChatGPT might provide,  concern has arisen around the ethical dilemmas and hazards it may present to student development and true digital learning.
