From the faculty

    Tomáš Foltýnek from the Faculty of Informatics is MU's representative in ENAI (European Network for Academic Integrity)

    Tomáš Foltýnek is one of the co-founders of the ENAI group, which tries to fight primarily against plagiarism and writing commissioned works. Artificial intelligence is now in the forefront interest, which gives another dimension to the issue of ethical behavior and document forgery.

    The basic values of academic ethics, such as honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility and courage are directly and indirectly mentioned in the MU strategic plan. MU has just recently joined the ENAI association and thus once again adheres to the values of academic ethics.

    Tomáš Foltýnek, who works as an assistant professor at the Department of Machine Learning and Data Processing, initiated the creation of a working group for the use of artificial intelligence in education. He says about the threat to academic integrity by artificial intelligence: "AI multiplies the abilities of the person who uses it, for better or worse. If I want to use AI honestly to learn something, it can make my job easier by having unproductive tasks done for me and allowing me to learn more efficiently. If someone wants to get through the study with the least effort, AI again may give them options. It's a double-edged sword.”

    MU's membership in ENAI primarily means the support that ENAI provides to its members. This will help to make it possible to create an ethical environment at MU with an emphasis on quality and honest work.
