  • 1.  Using ChatGPT for Academic Publications and Grants - livestream seminars

    Posted 06-26-2023 15:26
    Hi everyone
    In case it's of interest (and if not, please forgive me):
    To aid in the process of research and grant writing, Instats still has a places left for our three-part seminar series: Using ChatGPT for Academic Publications and Grants (running July, October, and December). Through hands-on applications, the seminars cover AI-driven research methods in a way that is specifically designed for researchers, graduate students, and professionals seeking to leverage the power of ChatGPT to enhance their research -- especially in the domain of grant writing, which as we all know can be quite tedious (even as it becomes increasingly important due to funding cuts). These seminars should be especially useful for those who need help in the process of manuscript preparation and grant writing, including ESL students/researchers, and all of us who are under substantial pressure to obtain grant funding with little support for doing so.
    Delivered through three separate seminars, the series takes participants on a journey through the new world of large language models using AI, focusing on its applications in 1) streamlining literature reviews, 2) academic paper writing/publication (including automating the R&R process), and 3) grant application writing. The interactive lectures and hands-on exercises will help participants master practical applications and best practices to unlock the full potential of ChatGPT for research workflows. By the end of this immersive set of seminars, participants will be armed with the knowledge and skills to effectively utilize ChatGPT in conducting efficient, comprehensive research and automated grant funding applications, while navigating ethical considerations and potential biases.
    Don't miss this opportunity to revamp and augment some of your work by harnessing the capabilities of ChatGPT (and Google Bard).

    The thought of "automating the R&R process" raises ethical willies for me; I wouldn't accept a student paper that used ChatGPT for their writing. So I am frankly asking -- do we have consensus that the boundaries of what is one's own work are established enough to contemplate (or endorse) "automating the R&R process"? I think it would be a contribution to see such guidelines drafted, discussed, and established.


    Of course, the "should we, and in what circumstances" may or may not come before the "this is how it works"; they may have to develop in tandem.
