Generative AI Special Topic Hub

SSRN’s Generative AI Special Topic Hub provides a curated view into new early-stage research addressing generative artificial intelligence (AI), its potential applications in fields as varied as search technology, law, finance, and education, and evolving conversations around the ethical use of these technologies. With increasingly sophisticated computerized platforms producing more human-like results, researchers in many disciplines are debating the role of AI large language model (LLM) chatbots such as generative pretrained transformers (GPT) like ChatGPT, Google Bard, and Microsoft Bing and Copilot in knowledge work and scientific research. The main points of the discussion revolve around ownership of the output of the systems as well as legitimate uses of these technologies and the need to identify guidelines to avoid misuse. This hub presents curated insights from many disciplines that may inform the ongoing conversation about GPTs, AI chatbots, and related applications.

SSRN, Elsevier’s world-leading preprint platform devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of early-stage research, is committed to advancing societal progress through quality knowledge and education. Research on SSRN is free to download and upload.

It is important to note that many of these papers have not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.
