But what about AI in generic scientific areas?
I have recently looked at scite.ai, a service that claims to analyze a paper if the references have been supported or contrasted the findings — any references that have been retracted in the meantime or received an expression of concern? While the latter isn’t really a big question, I was not very much impressed by the results as most references could not be classified.
But there are now more companies off the ground. Let’s have a look at some.
One is SciScore
SciScore generates three reports and a score for every submission. These materials assist researchers, editors, and funders in improving the quality and reliability of scientific research by automatically reporting detected criteria of interest for future review. Researchers signing up with their ORCID get ten free reports. Reports can take as little as 1 minute!
The next one is Prophy, another reference finder.
and there is Galactica.
and well also copy.ai
I have no idea if we really need this kind of stuff – any AI to write my blog even faster?
Also others commented earlier this month that it is “not obviously wrong but wrong in subtle ways”.
Fortunately Copyleaks released now even an AI detector just to fight back…
