Under the auspices of Professor Dr. Abdelaziz Konsowa, President of Alexandria University, the Centre for Economic Research and Studies at the Faculty of Economic Studies and Political Sciences organized an educational symposium entitled “Research Applications of Artificial Intelligence and Ethical Controls,” in which Dr. Nabil Salah El-Arabi, Professor of Digital Economics at the Faculty, and former advisor to one of the United Nations Development Program projects, lectured.
Dr. Ahmed Wahban, Dean of the Faculty, indicated that the symposium was attended by a group of faculty members, supporting staff, researchers, specialists, and students from the Departments of Economics and Political Science. He pointed out in his speech the importance of adhering to ethical controls and academic standards in scientific research, stressing that the development of artificial intelligence electronic and digital tools in academic research is not a substitute for serious, thorough scientific research, and the researchers must strive to benefit from contemporary technologies, including the potential of artificial intelligence, without falling into the trap of plagiarism or claiming intellectual property that is not their own creation.
