As artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots become more proficient at writing and performing complex tasks, scholars are debating the role large scale language models (LLM) can play in various kinds of knowledge work. SSRN's new AI & GPT-3 Special Topic Hub presents curated research to help inform the ongoing narrative on usage of AI and GPT-3, including ChatGPT, Google Bard, and Microsoft Bing.

Hub Page:

Description: SSRN's AI & GPT-3 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 its ethical use. 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 ChatGPT, Google Bard, and Microsoft Bing 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 GPT-3 and AI chatbots.

SSRN, Elsevier's world-leading 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.

SSRN's searchable library contains abstracts, full bibliographic data, and author contact information for more than 1.1 million papers, more than 1.1 million authors, and full text for more than 1 million papers. This content can be accessed at

SSRN supports open access by allowing authors to upload papers to the platform for free through the SSRN User HeadQuarters at - and by providing free downloading of those papers.

Downloads from SSRN in the past 12 months total more than 32.6 million, with more than 222.6 million downloads since inception.

Searching on an individual's name in the author field on our search page at provides a directory of scholars that includes contact information for authors, including email, postal, telephone, and fax information.

SSRN's objective is to provide rapid, worldwide distribution of research to authors and their readers and to facilitate communication among them at the lowest possible cost. In pursuit of this objective, we allow authors to upload papers without charge. And, any paper an author uploads to SSRN is downloadable for free, worldwide.
