It took Spotify reach a million user base about five months, Instagram reached a million users in two months, ChatGPT barely took five days to get a million subscribers. The AI tool is already revolutionising the world with its open source algorithm and wider than imagined use. But not everyone is impressed by the AI tool. ChatGPT is an AI-powered chatbot that has been developed by the Artificial Intelligence (AI) research company OpenAI. The chatbot understands natural language and responds in a human-like manner. It is based on GPT-3.5, which is a language model. The chatbot was unveiled as a prototype on November 30, 2022. The academic community has strongly come out against the AI tool, with several science journals banning the tool from being listed as a co-author on scientific papers and publications. Science journal publishers have restricted the use of the AI-driven advanced chatbot from being used in research papers. The leading US journal Science has updated its editorial policy and said, “For the Science journals, the word “original” is enough to signal that text written by ChatGPT is not acceptable: It is, after all, plagiarized from ChatGPT.” “We are now updating our license and Editorial Policies to specify that text generated by ChatGPT (or any other AI tools) cannot be used in the work, nor can figures, images, or graphics be the products of such tools. And an AI program cannot be an author. A violation of these policies will constitute scientific misconduct no different from altered images or plagiarism of existing works,” Holden Thorp, the editor-in-chief of the journal Science, wrote in an editorial. The Science journal Nature has also said that there is a need for ground rules following the outburst of ChatGPT-like AI tools on the scene. The journal in an editorial said that it is high time researchers and publishers laid down ground rules about using Large Language Models (LLM) ethically. “First, no LLM tool will be accepted as a credited author on a research paper. That is because any attribution of authorship carries with it accountability for the work, and AI tools cannot take such responsibility. Second, researchers using LLM tools should document this use in the methods or acknowledgments sections. If a paper does not include these sections, the introduction or another appropriate section can be used to document the use of the LLM,” Nature said in its updated editorial policy.
