The 2024 school year in Peru has commenced with over 6 million students returning to classrooms and embarking on their academic tasks. As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to grow, some students may turn to this technology to complete their assignments. However, there is a need for proper knowledge on how to use AI tools effectively.

To address this question, Trade interviewed Liliana Muñoz Guevara, director of the Unit for Comprehensive Basic Training at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, and Omar Florez, an expert in artificial intelligence. They are enthusiastic about providing guidance on the proper use of AI tools for students.

Munoz advises students not to be afraid to use new tools and to use them wisely. She emphasizes that AI can help explore, compare, complement and delve deeper into complex topics, enhancing personalized learning for academic pursuits. On the other hand, Omar suggests using AI tools like Perplexites and Wolfram Alpha for learning. He explains that Perplexity can provide accurate and up-to-date information, while Wolfram Alpha is an online tool that can solve mathematical queries through natural language dialogues.

Both experts stress the importance of verifying the original data source when using AI chatbots to ensure the accuracy of the information. They also highlight the various ways in which artificial intelligence can be used to improve academic performance in various disciplines such as science and maths.

Although artificial intelligence can be useful for academic work, it is necessary to consider ethical aspects when using it. Liliana and Omar both emphasize the importance of maintaining a human aspect to the learning process such as peer interaction and teacher guidance, to encourage active engagement and emotional well-being.

In conclusion, with proper guidance from experts like Liliana Muñoz Guevara and Omar Florez, students can harness the power of AI tools effectively while ensuring ethical considerations are taken into account throughout their academic journey.
