ChatGPT is a great resource for researchers. However, there are two major drawbacks to using ChatGPT to develop your research.
Large language models (LLMs) like ChatGPT hallucinate.
LLMs make up answers that seem plausible rather than pulling directly from factual sources. This is a potentially fatal flaw for writing and developing source material. Human knowledge is built by stacking brick-upon-brick of tested conclusions, not from plausible guesses presented as facts.
LLMs don't cite sources.
There are no easy ways to understand how they arrive at their answers to questions. They are inherently opaque under the hood.
ScholarAI is a plugin designed to provide users with access to a database of peer-reviewed articles and academic research. ScholarAI connects the LLMs that power ChatGPT with tailored access to open access articles. Users can directly query relevant peer-reviewed studies to find reliable information for their scientific research, technical projects, and funding proposals.
