Positioning large language model artificial intelligence tools within discourse analysis
Opportunities, challenges and ethical considerations
Keywords:Artificial Intelligence, ChatGPT, Qualitative Research, Large Language Models
AbstractArtificial Intelligence (AI) tools based on Large Language Models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT has generated significant interested within the higher education sector. The threats, challenges and opportunities for its use in teaching and learning continue to be discussed widely, however it’s use within research and especially research involving marginalised perspectives is far less discussed. This panel will share how ChatGPT was used to add value to the conversations between researchers applying critical discourse analysis exploring Indigenous Australian perspectives with international students. As part of their study the researchers compared the efficacy of ChaptGPT and NVIVIO and the impacts on iterative discourse discussions between the researchers. While the data in this research revealed some very encouraging results, it also highlighted significant areas that need to be explored even further especially around ethical use of AI and untangling in-built biases within the tools’ algorithms.
