AI-written academic paper submitted to peer review

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI

A Swedish researcher tasked an AI algorithm to write an academic paper about itself. The paper is now undergoing a peer-review process.

Almira Osmanovic Thunstrom has said she “stood in awe” as OpenAI’s artificial intelligence algorithm, GPT-3, started generating a text for a 500-word thesis about itself, complete with scientific references and citations.

“It looked like any other introduction to a fairly good scientific publication,” she said in an editorial piece published by Scientific American. Thunstrom then asked her adviser at the University of Gothenburg, Steinn Steingrimsson, whether she should take the experiment further and try to complete and submit the paper to a peer-reviewed journal.
