Generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) is revolutionizing research dissemination and knowledge mobilization. Tools like ChatGPT and Midjourney can craft summaries, visuals, and even creative outputs to enhance communication. AI offers wider reach through diverse channels and personalized experiences, boosting engagement. However, ethical considerations like data security and bias require careful navigation. By defining clear goals, choosing appropriate tools, and using responsible practices, researchers can leverage AI to maximize impact and unlock the potential for groundbreaking discovery.
