Generative AI tools enable researchers to generate multimedia content, including human-like visuals, voice and text. This novel paper’s purpose is to use generative AI to create a short paper, and to critically evaluate the process and implications of the material generated. Firstly, the capabilities of AI to generate multimedia content is summarised with an example of an AI generated professor. Both the opening section, and concluding reflections, are written without the use of AI. Perplexity.ai, an AI tool based on a large language model is used, through a series of prompts, to generate a short paper on AI in the animation industry. The generated paper emerged through a series of prompts written during a 90-minute session. The generated text is presented as is, modified only with minor deletions. In the concluding section, the impact of generative AI tools on researching are reflected upon with some positive and negative insights outlined.
