AI Tools and Resources

How to use ChatGPT, Bard, Bing's AI, and other generative AI tools in your research


This Research Guide outlines ways you can use tools driven by generative artificial intelligence (AI) while you are exploring, gathering, evaluating, and citing information.

We designed this guide for:

  • Fisher students whose instructors allow generative artificial intelligence (AI) in assignments
  • Fisher faculty and staff who want to use AI-driven research tools in their scholarship

Visit Fisher's AI toolkit to learn more about generative AI, Fisher's policies for generative AI tools, and for additional tips:

Word of Caution: Copyright

You should be cautious about entering any copyrighted material into the prompt of any generative AI tool.

Here are a few scenarios to consider:

  • If you are entering copyrighted material into any generative AI tool, you should be protected by Fair Use as long as you use the information for educational purposes and in a way that follows Fisher's Academic Integrity Policy.
  • You should not enter any copyrighted material into the prompts of any generative AI tool if you are not doing so for educational purposes. This may violate copyright.
  • You should be cautious about entering any of your own work into a generative AI prompt, as that material may be shared with others without acknowledging your authorship.
