AI language models open a potential Pandora's box of medical research fraud
In a paper published in the open-access journal Patterns, the research duo demonstrated the feasibility of fabricating a research paper using ChatGPT, an AI-based language model. Simply by asking, they were able to have ChatGPT produce a number of well-written, entirely made-up abstracts. A hypothetical fraudster could then submit these fake abstracts to multiple journals seeking publication. If accepted, the same process could be used to write an entire study with false data, nonexistent participants and meaningless results. However, it could appear legitimate, especially if the subject is particularly abstract or not screened by an expert in the specific field.
In a previous experiment cited in the current paper, humans were given both human-created and AI-generated abstracts to consider. In that experiment, humans incorrectly identified 32% of the AI-generated research abstracts as real and 14% of the human-written abstracts as fake.

Yeah, that second article.
The potential for fraud is great. Just imagine that Nigerian scam letters became grammatically correct!

“Fake abstract vs. real abstract” is less of an issue from a utilitarian standpoint.
It matters more that real and good research were done, that real and good experiments were conducted, that real and honest data were collected and published. After that, I don’t particularly care whether the researchers write the abstracts themselves or use AI to help them write the abstracts, as long as the abstracts accurately reflect the research, the experiments, and the data.
I can easily see a brilliant Japanese/Korean/Chinese researcher using AI to help him generate the English text to use to publish his work in an English language journal or symposium. It may more effectively get his ideas and results across the language barrier than the researcher doing the same without AI. And that will benefit not only the researcher but also the field of his research.
