Using ChatGPT in Research


ChatGPT is an advanced language model developed by OpenAI that can generate human-like text. The technology is widely used in various industries, including marketing, customer service, education, and research. The chatbot technology has made it easier for researchers to gather data from participants quickly and efficiently. However, using ChatGPT in research raises several ethical concerns that need to be addressed.

Data protection is one of the primary ethical considerations of using ChatGPT in research. Researchers must ensure that the data collected from participants is kept confidential and protected from unauthorised access. This includes securing the chatbot technology, encrypting data, and establishing protocols to protect data from hackers.
