Med research grants: what not do with AI

The National Health and Medical Research Council is working on an AI policy for funding – for now it has don’ts not do’s

As ever with the NHMRC, issues are thought through and implications addressed.

 “take caution” with applications: “it may not be possible to monitor or manage subsequent use of information entered into generative AI databases”

peer reviewers: “must not use generative AI tools to assist them in the assessment of grant applications as this would be a breach of their confidentiality undertaking”

updates to come: “as technologies develop and our understanding of risks and benefits is deepened.”

Wise move – what with nobody having a digital clue in a cyber bucket what new tech there will be in a month, or a week.
