The use of artificial intelligence in scientific research with integrity and ethics




Artificial intelligence, Research ethics, Ethical governance, Scientific integrity, Algorithmic transparency


This paper addresses the evolution of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in scientific research and the ethical and integrity challenges that arise with its integration. AI has become an indispensable tool for researchers, accelerating discoveries and optimizing processes. However, using these algorithms raises concerns about bias, transparency, and accountability. The ability of machines to learn and create knowledge challenges the paradigms of authorship and credibility, putting integrity and ethics under new scrutiny. The discussion emphasizes robust ethical governance, collaboration among stakeholders, ongoing education, and the creation of transparent and auditable algorithms. It further highlights the importance of maintaining ethics and integrity at the heart of AI research to ensure its advancement benefits humanity fairly and responsibly, emphasizing the need for a holistic approach involving education, transparency, accountability, and active participation of multiple stakeholders. Finally, it reiterates that as we embark on this new era of AI-driven discovery, we must embrace both the opportunities and the ethical challenges it presents, ensuring that the use of AI in scientific research continues to benefit humanity by promoting knowledge and well-being.
