If an AI can be said to cheat, then yes.
I had a few Chat GPT papers turned in this semester, one of which includes a direct quote that does not exist on the page cited and probably does not exist anywhere in the cited work at all.
Sketchy, or just weird?
As I think about it, the issue isn’t just that the quote doesn’t exist.
The issue is that the quote contradicts what the author actually said.
I’ll get back to this later (packing now!)
