AI: What’s new for researchers?
The Academic Writing Center continues the series of workshops on technology at writers’ service.
Fortunately or unfortunately, we’ve come to the point when it’s hardly possible to imagine the writing process without artificial intelligence tools. Researchers, among other authors, use technology to facilitate writing. Therefore, the Academic Writing Center continues the series of workshops on technology at writers’ service.
This week, Diana Akhmedjanova ran a workshop on using such AI tools as Rytr, Good AI, QuillBot, and Wordtune. Testing the tools, participants came up with an outline for their potential article, received a generated summary and a draft. After trying out the resources, participants discussed the instruments’ strengths and weaknesses and shared their impressions. The impressions varied from skepticism to fascination, but all the participants agreed that the opportunity to practice using new resources was invaluable:
“Engaging interactive activities, clear instructions in the handout, as well as the immediate implementation of the knowledge received. I feel like my time has been invested the best way possible.”
“The workshop gave a quick overview of different tools and allowed to discuss their applicability with colleagues from other fields. I really liked the interactive format; I did not get bored or distracted at any point.”
“The session was very useful in a sense that it connected theory with practice to provide hands-on experience and troubleshooting that had a long-term learning impact.”
