Chatbots Are Not the Future

“I basically don’t see any legitimate use for ChatGPT in science, and this likely applies to its future successors as well.

Don’t use it for writing, and definitely don’t use it for research.

It is the exact opposite of what we want in scientific info sources: it is centralized, black-box, citation-less, for-profit, proprietary, and methodological unlinked to empirical thinking.”
