ChatGPT can craft essays that appear human-made, significantly influencing how liberal arts and humanities are taught and graded. Soon, its impacts will be felt by the world of science and engineering. In this talk, I’ll showcase how ChatGPT can produce convincing and thorough reviews of scientific papers and proposals, using my past IEE seed grants as case studies. These AI-generated reviews sound authentic, but it’s uncertain if they match the quantitative rankings human experts would provide. Moreover, as ChatGPT reshapes the review process, we face a new challenge: discerning whether reviewers are genuinely offering their expertise or leaning on computer tools. The title and abstract for this talk were generated by ChatGPT 4.
