ChatGPT for Academic Research: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

While the technology of ChatGPT is rapidly evolving, AI chatbots have the potential to profoundly change the way we search for information and conduct research online. We will look at what sources ChatGPT is built on and discuss specific scenarios in which students are using ChatGPT to find sources and summarize research literature. From the pitfalls of citation hallucinations to the potential of accelerating research, we will discuss the practical and ethical implications of the widespread adoption of ChatGPT as a personal research assistant.

Workshop Goals

  • Introduce participants to the the sources ChatGPT is trained on
  • Discuss scenarios in which students/researchers may use ChatGPT
  • Share the practical and ethical implications of using ChatGPT
