Artificial intelligence can expedite scientific communication and eradicate bias from the publishing process

This post was originally published on this site


Scientific publishing already uses some early artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to address certain issues with the peer review process, such as identifying new reviewers or fighting plagiarism. As part of a BioMed Central/Digital Science report on the future of peer review, Chadwick C. DeVoss outlines what other innovations AI might facilitate. Software with the capability to complete subject-oriented reviews of manuscripts, coupled with automated methodological reviews, could enable a fully automated publishing process – including the decision to publish. Although automated publishing would allow researchers to share their findings faster, while also removing human bias, there are obvious ethical dilemmas related to this dehumanisation of the process.
