Content warning: ChatGPT listed as author on research papers: many scientists disapprove

AI reshared this.

Yeah, it can be quite useful!

The discussion linked is not addressing whether it is suitable or not to use ChatGPT as a tool, but rather addresses whether ChatGPT should be given authorship.

It references these papers where "ChatGPT" was included in the author list:

I read the article a bit quickly 😃
It's a tricky question though. We are not used to that machines can do human activities so it can be an uncomfortable feeling to see it in the author list for some people. I think that putting ChatGPT is the author list is the honest answer if you used it as a helper.

It is a big debate now. My current view is that these are tools that we use, and they should be described in the methods section.

As we increase our reliance on these kinds of tools, it doesn't seem practical or useful to me to include the name of the 17 AI tools that we will use to write a paper in the authors list.

But it is not a very developed view. I can be persuaded to think that AI tools deserve authorship! I would ask ChatGPT what it thinks about it but it is unavailable at the moment.

It's interesting what it would reply 😃

Cool! Haha.. I'm really still mindblown by the fact that this thing has become a reality. That it's possible for a computer to respond like this. Wow.
