Can ChatGPT write an academic paper? Review of "A Day in the Life of ChatGPT"

  • 1. Universit√© Libre de Bruxelles


Mashrin Srivastava tried to get ChatGPT to write a full academic paper. This report reviews the process used, and the results generated by ChatGPT. It finds the generated paper unconvincing as an academic work, still subject to the well-known weaknesses of large language models: superficially impressive, but incorrect, unreliable and empty of meaning.


While the author is affiliated with the LISA laboratory ofthe Université Libre de Bruxelles, this work was done independently from the research group and does not aim to follow usual academic standards. It was originally written as a blog post on the author's personal research blog.
