Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has an increasing impact on human society. The advancements in machine learning, natural language processing and other fields of AI leads to the development of more and more complex algorithms. Machines are able to automatically fulfill tasks which have traditionally been the domain of humans. These machines, so called AI-robots, have lately found their way into education through the introduction of tools such as DeepL, Quillbot and lately ChatGPT. As of now, research on the influence of AI-tools on teaching and learning processes, but also the required competencies to work with those tools, has been scarce. The research work examines the usage of AI-tools and attitudes towards AI-tools of first-years students, considering two main types of AI-tools. These AI-tools can be distinguished as mindful and mindless robots, depending on their functionalities and capabilities. The results show that first-year students prefer mindless AI tools over more human like tools. Additionally, their attitude towards AI technology does not have statistically significant influence of their willingness to use AI technology.
