Využití chatbotů pro tvůrčí činnost v akademickém prostředí

Tutoriál je zaměřen na představení některých způsobů, kterými mohou chatboti usnadnit tvůrčí činnost a zvýšit efektivitu tvůrčí práce (např. asistence při psaní manuskriptů a grantových žádostí, výzkumných zpráv, komunikace se žurnály, poradenství k výzkumné činnosti a práci s daty).

Upozornění:  Chatboty je vhodné využívat jako doplňkový nástroj k vaší vlastní tvůrčí a intelektuální práci, nikoli jako její plnou náhradu. Zároveň je vždy nezbytně nutné výstupy chatbotů pečlivě a kriticky zhodnotit a zeditovat a ne je jen bezmyšlenkovitě přejímat. Pokud výstupy chatbotů použijete ve své práci, jste plně zodpovědní za jejich faktickou správnost a relevanci. Nikdy neposkytujte chatbotům osobní ani jiná citlivá data. Doporučujeme si prostudovat Doporučení pro práci s AI 

Jednoduchá pravidla, jak je definuje Mushtaq Bilal:

  • Use AI for Structure and Not Content
  • Outsource Academic Labor to AI But Not Thinking
  • Treat AI as a Research Assistant Not a Supervisor
  • Don’t Over-Rely on AI and Don’t Forget to Use Your Common Sense

Obecná pravidla pro efektivní komunikaci s chatboty

  • Pro efektivní interakci s chatbotem je klíčové být konkrétní a jasný ve formulaci zadání (promptu). 
  • Stanovte chatbotovi jasnou roli (Act as../ You are a../Assume a role of..) a očekávané schopnosti/kvality (with expertize in…/with experience as..)
  • Poskytnutím kontextu (help me with…/provide advice on…/critically evaluate my..) získáte přesnější odpovědi. 
  • Rozložení komplexních témat na menší, číslované otázky (Your task is to: 1) .. 2..)..3)..) usnadní chatbotovi generování “soustředěnějších” odpovědí. 
  • Používejte “zaklínadla”, instrukce, které zvyšují relevantnost odpovědí (Let’s work it out in a step-by-step way to ensure the right outcome./Let’s think step by step.) 
  • Kde lze, používejte příklady či upřesňující informace (vložte “journal scope”/best practice rules/”template paragraphs” s instrukcí “respect the language and style of this template text”).
  • Umožněte chatbotovi doptat se na informace, které potřebuje k vygenerování relevantnější odpovědi (You can ask me for additional information which you consider important to ensure better outcome./Ask me for additional information you need to know to provide the best outcome of the task.) 

Pokud nejste spokojeni s výstupy, experimentujte s různými formulacemi a žádejte o příklady nebo vysvětlení. Vždy iterujte a upřesňujte zadání na základě zpětné vazby pro dosažení lepších výsledků. Pokud chatbot reaguje divně, nesnažte se ho navést na “správnou cestu”, ale ukončete konverzaci a začněte “načisto” v novém konverzačním okně. Není žádoucí, aby podivné/špatné reakce byly součástí kontextového okna.

Spoiler: Na promptování neexistuje žádný univerzálně správný návod. Následující doporučení jsou sestaveny na základě zkušeností uživatelů a několika studií. Experimentujte a pokuste se najít si svůj vlastní styl, který by poskytoval výsledky ve formátu, který vám bude nejlépe vyhovovat. 

Chatboty lze využít jako efektivní pomocníky při psaní vědeckých článků, grantových žádostí i průběžných zpráv či jako konzultanty plánovaných experimentů. Následující prompty mají v první řadě sloužit jako příklady, které si můžete přizpůsobit dle své aktuální potřeby a zaměření. Neváhejte experimentovat s obměnami zadání, vyzkoušejte jak budou různí chatboti reagovat (ChatGPT, Claude 2, Copilot, Gemini Pro) a nenechte se odradit prvotními neúspěchy a “podivnostmi”, na které určitě narazíte. 

Má význam AI nástroje při práci používat?

Pokud při své práci nebudete AI nástroje využívat, budete ve značné nevýhodě oproti těm, kteří je již používají. Při správném použití, můžete být efektivnější a produkovat mnohem kvalitnější výstupy.

Návod na práci s cvičnými prompty

  • Pro vyzkoušení promptů (modrý text), stačí nahradit kurzívou zvýrazněné části zadání vaším oborem/specializací a vlastními cvičnými texty. To vám umožní kriticky zhodnotit relevanci a faktickou správnost odpovědí. 
  • Chatboti nejlépe reagují v angličtině, ale i pokud zadáte prompt v anglickém jazyce, můžete následující konverzaci vést v češtině (stačí do ní plynule přejít, není třeba vyzývat chatbota k překladu, začne v češtině reagovat sám od sebe). Pokud byste raději rovnou vkládali prompt v českém jazyce, můžete chatbota nejprve nechat prompt přeformulovat do češtiny (např. “Prosím, převeď tento prompt do českého jazyka, tak aby byla zachována jeho struktura i funkce. (vložte prompt)”) a poté začněte novou konverzaci s tímto modifikovaným promptem. 
  • Konverzaci můžete začít, buď vložením celého kompletního promptu, který naleznete v následujících příkladech použití, nebo použít pouze jeho konkrétní dílčí části, které vás zajímají a co je “navíc” smazat.
  • V následné konverzaci můžete požadovat upřesnění/detailní rozvedení odpovědi, některých bodů/konkrétní návrhy na vylepšení apod. Přistupujte k chatbotovi stejný způsobem, jako byste přirozeně konverzovali s “živým” kolegou. 
  • Chatboti mají omezená “kontextová okna” a při delší konverzaci hrozí, že se role/kontext začnou postupně vytrácet a chatbot nebude reagovat podle představ (můžete mu roli připomenout znovuvložením úvodní části promptu, např. “Just to remind you your role/expertize: vložte úvod promptu”)
  • V odkazech pod cvičnými prompty naleznete náhled na ukázkovou reakci chatbota na dané zadání.
  • V případě ukázek pod odkazy na ChatGPT si můžete vyzkoušet v konverzaci pokračovat (můžete nechat části odpovědí podrobněji rozvést a detailně rozpracovat, apod.).

Asistence při psaní vědeckých článků

Chatboty není úplně vhodné používat pro textové korektury či překlady, k tomu jsou dostupné nástroje optimalizované přímo pro tyto účely (pro proof-reading např. Quillbot či Grammarly, pro překlady např. DeepL). Absolutně nevhodné jsou pro literární rešerše (použijte např. SciSpace či Litmaps; doporučujeme náš tutoriál pro práci s research a writing asistenty).

Pokročilejší modely (ChatGPT-4 a Claude 2) fungují jako tzv. “reasoning engine” = jsou schopné nejen odpovídat na otázky, ale dokáží také poměrně dobře simulovat odvozování logických závěrů z daných faktů. Nejlépe slouží jako “simulovaní” asistenti a poradci pro dobře definované úkoly.

„““As mentioned above, the toxicity of selected dendrimers was also investigated in the context of a living organism using a zebrafish model. The first FET tests were performed on intact embryos, where six phosphonium carbosilane dendrimers of the third generation at concentrations between 0.001 μM and 100 μM were tested. The toxicity of two of these dendrimers (PMe3 and NMe3) has already been verified in a study where these dendrimers were successfully used as vectors for siRNA transfection. Twenty-four embryos per concentration (one embryo per well) were used for toxicity investigation of dendrimers. Individual wells were measured as independent replicates for statistical analysis. A single FET test was used in the toxicity evaluation of dendrimers. This decision was made mainly for ethical and economic reasons. In order to investigate the toxicity of the dendrimers in a truly comprehensive way, we decided to dechorionated the zebrafish embryos, as it has still not been established whether chorion constitutes an effective barrier to chemicals, protecting the embryo from their effects. For dechorionated embryos, three concentrations between 0.005 μM and 0.5 μM for all six dendrimers were used.“““

ChatGPT:

Thank you for sharing your manuscript draft on the toxicity of dendrimers using a zebrafish model. As an expert in nanomaterial toxicity with experience in scientific reviewing, I will provide a structured critique to enhance the quality of your work. Let’s proceed step-by-step:

1. Careful Reading of the Text

I have read through the provided text, focusing on the experimental setup, the methodology used, and the rationale behind certain decisions.

2. Critical Evaluation

Structure and Clarity:

  • The structure of the paragraph is logical, starting with an introduction to the subject, detailing the experimental setup, and then explaining the rationale for specific methodological choices.
  • However, the transition between the different parts of the experiment (intact embryos vs. dechorionated embryos) could be clearer.

Experimental Design:

  • The use of six phosphonium carbosilane dendrimers and a range of concentrations is commendable for its thoroughness.
  • Mentioning the prior use of PMe3 and NMe3 dendrimers for siRNA transfection is relevant, but it would be beneficial to briefly state the outcomes or implications of that study for context.
  • The sample size of 24 embryos per concentration is adequate, but it would be important to know if this is consistent with standard practices in the field.
  • The use of individual wells as independent replicates is a good practice for statistical robustness.

Methodological Choices:

  • The decision to use a single FET (Fish Embryo Toxicity) test, while understandable for ethical and economic reasons, might raise concerns about the comprehensiveness of the toxicity assessment. It would be beneficial to discuss any limitations this might impose on your conclusions.
  • The rationale for dechorionating the embryos is sound, but the manuscript would benefit from references supporting the uncertainty about the chorion as a chemical barrier.
3. Proposed Improvements

Clarifications and Additions:

  • Expand on the background of dendrimer toxicity, particularly relating to the relevance of PMe3 and NMe3 in siRNA transfection.
  • Provide more context or references about standard practices in zebrafish embryo toxicity testing, particularly regarding sample size and test repetition.

Methodological Justifications:

  • Discuss potential limitations or uncertainties introduced by using a single FET test. Are there compensatory measures or additional tests that could mitigate these limitations?
  • Include references or a brief discussion on the debate around the chorion’s role in chemical exposure.

Technical and Stylistic Enhancements:

  • Improve transitions between different parts of the experiment for better readability.
  • Consider adding a brief introductory sentence or paragraph to give an overview of the study’s aim and significance in the broader context of dendrimer research.

Would you be able to provide additional information or clarification on any of these points? For example, could you share more about the outcomes of the previous study on PMe3 and NMe3 dendrimers for siRNA transfection, or the standard practices in zebrafish embryo toxicity testing in your field?

    • Regression analysis to investigate the dose-response relationship.
  2. Data Visualization: Plot dose-response curves to visualize the relationship between nanoparticle concentration and the observed effects. Box plots or bar graphs could be effective for comparing means between groups.
  3. Software Tools: Consider using R or Python for data analysis, both of which have extensive libraries for statistical analysis and data visualization. For more user-friendly, GUI-based analysis, consider software like SPSS or GraphPad Prism.
Interpretation of Results:
  1. Dose-Response Relationship: Evaluate the slope and fit of the dose-response curve to determine the strength and nature (linear, exponential, etc.) of the relationship.
  2. Significance: Use p-values from your statistical tests to determine the significance of your results. Remember that a low p-value (<0.05) typically indicates that there’s a significant difference between your control and treated groups.
  3. Confounding Factors: Always be vigilant about potential confounding factors. For instance, were there any environmental factors that could have impacted zebrafish development independent of the nanoparticles?
  4. Integration with Previous Research: Compare your findings with previous research. Do your results support existing literature, or have you found something novel?
  5. Limitations: Acknowledge any limitations in your experimental design or analysis. This might include potential sources of error, sample size considerations, or uncontrolled variables.

„““The rapid growth of nanotechnology has led to increasing concerns about the potential toxicity of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs). Here we investigate the cytoxicity and genotoxicity of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), which have numerous commercial applications, in human lung epithelial cells. AgNPs were synthesized via a green chemistry approach using plant extracts. Partical size and morphology were characerized by transmision electron microscopy (TEM) and dynamic light scattering (DLS). Cells were exposed to various concentrations of AgNPs for 24 and 48 hrs and assesed for viability and DNA damage using standard assays. AgNPs significently reduced cell viability and proliferation in a dose-dependant manor. Comet analysis revealed increased DNA strand breadks with higher AgNPs concentrations. Zeta potential measurements indicated agglomeration of AgNPs in cell culture medium, which may impact bioavability. Our findigns show that plant-synthesized AgNPs exhibt dose-dependent toxicity in lung cells, likely due to oxidative stress. Further studies are needed to fully elucidate the mechanisms behind AgNPs cyto- and genotoxicity. Safe manufacturing and applications of ENPs requires careful assessment of potenial human health risks.““

ChatGPT:

Thank you for sharing your abstract, Michaela. Overall, it’s a well-rounded snapshot of your research. However, there are some areas where it could be enhanced for clarity, structure, and scientific rigor. Let’s go through it step-by-step:

Spelling and Grammar:
  1. „Partical size“ should be „Particle size.“
  2. „characerized“ should be „characterized.“
  3. „assesed“ should be „assessed.“
  4. „signficently“ should be „significantly.“
  5. „dependant manor“ should be „dependent manner.“
  6. „breadks“ should be „breaks.“
  7. „bioavability“ should be „bioavailability.“
  8. „findigns“ should be „findings.“
  9. „potenial“ should be „potential.“
Structure and Clarity:
  1. Introduction: Briefly mention why silver nanoparticles are relevant, and what is currently lacking in our understanding of their toxicity.
  2. Methods: While you’ve described the methods succinctly, you might want to consider removing very specific details like „24 and 48 hrs“ to save space for results and implications.
  3. Results: Make it clear what the primary outcomes were in a more consolidated form.
  4. Conclusion and Future Directions: Clarify the practical implications of the findings for nanotechnology or public health.
Ethical Considerations:

You mention „safe manufacturing and applications of ENPs requires careful assessment.“ It may be useful to expand on the ethical imperative for such studies, even if briefly.

Revised Abstract:

„The rapid advancement of nanotechnology has escalated concerns over the toxicity of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs), specifically silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), due to their widespread commercial use. This study utilizes a green chemistry approach for synthesizing AgNPs and investigates their cytotoxic and genotoxic effects on human lung epithelial cells. Characterization of AgNP size and morphology was conducted using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and dynamic light scattering (DLS). The impact on cell viability and DNA integrity was assessed, revealing a dose-dependent decline in cell health and increase in DNA strand breaks. Zeta potential measurements suggested that AgNP agglomeration in culture media could affect bioavailability. Our findings affirm that plant-synthesized AgNPs pose a dose-dependent toxicity risk, likely mediated through oxidative stress. These results underline the need for rigorous safety evaluations to mitigate potential human health risks associated with AgNPs.“
