Library Services has been looking at some interesting AI powered tools and platforms that are available to access on the internet right now.
We would suggest caution with using these tools and platforms and where necessary you should declare your use of these such as in acknowledgements or references. Focus on outlining how you have used them in producing any related work or material.
AI platforms (such as those we've listed below) provide a particular focus on using AI when it comes to accessing, using and summarising academic research.
There are a number of emerging tools that use Gen AI and we've provided a quick overview for some of these below. This is inclusive of highlighting some potential benefits and drawbacks in making use of the tools.
The most well known generative AI tool. The free version provides unlimited messages and interactions within a 'chatbot' interface.
An interesting combination of Gen AI and RAG that enables you to upload and chat with PDF documents such as journal articles or book chapters.
An interesting new search engine that offers free access (up to a limit) and different focuses depending on what you need to do.
