5. AI at Charles Sturt University

Charles Sturt University Research Initiatives

The Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Futures Institute has details on research areas and opportunities for students and researchers.


Referencing GAITs has been incorporated into Charles Sturt’s APA Referencing Summary and Academic Referencing Tool (ART). The Academic Skills team provides assistance with referencing and you can make an appointment or ask a question on their Study Success Forum.

Checking references found by AI

Information generated by AI may be unreliable or fake. See if citations are legitimate by checking:

  • If the Journal or Book title exists in Primo or TROVE
  • If the volume issue number and dates correspond
  • If the page numbers and article or chapter title correspond

If yes to all of the above, then the reference might be useful, but before you use or cite any source you should read it and evaluate the information yourself using the CRAP test.

For more information read Matthew Hillier’s article on TECHE blog; Why does ChatGPT generate fake references?.
