AI search tools during the doctorate

Written by

  • Perplexity AI:  “is an AI chatbot-powered research and conversational search engine that answers queries using natural language predictive text. Launched in 2022, Perplexity generates answers using sources from the web and cites links within the text response” (from wikipedia)
  • ResearchRabbit “is a scholarly publication discovery tool supported by artificial intelligence (AI). It was developed in 2021 by a team of three in Seattle. This tool lets users discover publications related to one or more seed publications with the help of visualization maps and lists of earlier, later, and similar publications. ResearchRabbit is designed to support the workflow of unstructured searching while providing a left-to-right trail from the original publication(s) through any selected authors or publications. These trails, which can run as deep as rabbit holes, suggest the origin of the tool’s name.” (from Cole, V., & Boutet, M. (2023). ResearchRabbit (product review). Journal of the Canadian Health Libraries Association Journal De l’Association Des bibliothèques De La Santé Du Canada44(2), 43–47. doi: 10.29173/jchla29699)
  • Scispace: “a sophisticated, multi-faceted tool that serves as a comprehensive solution to streamline the literature review process. By leveraging the state-of-the-art methods in vector-based search, reranking, and large language models, the tool delivers features like customizable search results, data exintegration with an AI assistant, multi-language support, top papers insights, and customizable results columns to cater a researcher’s requirements, and accelerate literature exploration.” (from Jain, S., et. al. (2024). SciSpace Literature Review: Harnessing AI for Effortless Scientific Discovery. In: Goharian, N., et al.Advances in Information Retrieval. ECIR 2024. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 14612. Springer, Cham. doi: 10.1007/978-3-031-56069-9_28

Critical thinking and reflection on the search results is still a crucial key element.
