What are AI search tools?

  • AI search tools use machine learning or large language models (LLMs) to discover articles and generate summaries.
  • AI tools can use a variety of different freely available sources to provide an answer. These sources can vary from unverified blogs to published medical literature.
  • It's important to confim that citations and summaries generated from AI search tools are accurate.

    • to quickly gain an overview of topic and identify gaps in research.
  • After scholarly database searching
