What an attendee said about this ACS Webinar!

The webinar provided a comprehensive overview of the considerations that researchers should bear in mind while integrating AI into their work. The speaker's ability to clarify the boundaries of AI's utility, as well as its limitation, was impressive. I believe the discussion on when to appropriately leverage AI in research and when to exercise caution was particularly valuable.
