Scottish university leads project to ensure ethical use of AI in research

Activity: Public Engagement and OutreachMedia Participation


The University of Strathclyde will lead a multi-thousand-pound project on generative artificial intelligence (generative AI).

The 10-month-long initiative strives to prevent ethical drawbacks from using the technology in research.

Generative AI creates things based on a certain input, with examples including text-to-speech and image synthesis. The technology became popular after the release of ChatGPT in November 2022.

Professor Wendy Moncur, who leads the £100,000 project, said:

“Our aim is to enable UK universities to exploit the incredible potential of generative AI, while protecting participants’ privacy and the excellent quality of UK academic research, by understanding and guarding against potential pitfalls.”.....
