Turkish Student Arrested for Using AI-Powered Device to Cheat in University Entrance Exam

Turkish authorities arrest a student for using AI to cheat in a university entrance exam. The student employed a hidden camera and AI software to receive answers during the exam. The incident prompts discussions about the ethical implications of AI in education.

The student was noticed acting suspiciously during the exam over the weekend and was detained by police before being formally arrested and sent to jail pending trial, while an accomplice who aided in the cheating scheme has also been taken into custody.


In a video released by the police in the province of Isparta, located in southwestern Turkey, the intricate setup employed by the student is revealed. The student ingeniously concealed a camera, disguised as a shirt button, which was connected to an AI software system via a hidden router embedded in the sole of their shoe.


The video demonstrates the functioning of the illicit system, as a police officer scans a question using the camera. The AI software swiftly processes the information and generates the correct answer, which is then relayed to the student through an earpiece.


Cheating in exams is a serious offense that undermines the integrity of the education system. Turkish authorities are determined to crack down on such fraudulent practices to ensure a fair and level playing field for all students. The arrest of this student serves as a stern warning to others who may be tempted to employ similar tactics.
