Hello all:

Some of you might find this piece I wrote for the Centre for Global Innovation Governance (CIGI) to be of interest: https://www.cigionline.org/articles/chatgpt-strikes-at-the-heart-of-the-scientific-world-view/.

Drawing on José van Dijck’s work on dataism, and my own extension of Susan Strange’s concept of knowledge structures, it focuses on the thinking behind ChatGPT and machine learning. It argues that the reaction to ChatGPT highlights that dataist views are becoming more entrenched at the cost of evidence-based, theory-and-method-driven scientific thinking, effectively redefining what we consider to be knowledge and who we think of as experts.
