Using AI in Evaluation

At the blog of the American Evaluation Association, AEA 365, evaluation consultant Sylva Ferretti has contributed a two-part reflection on working with AI in evaluation, particularly ChatGPT. Overall, she finds this AI tool to be useful, additive, and even progressive in her practice in the field of international development and humanitarian assistance.  ChatGPT is, especially, able to engage with and analyze complexity while responding to the concepts and systems, such as logic models, in this field, freeing up the evaluator’s time to explore issues and options more deeply.  But unlike humans, this app has little capacity for empathy and compassion, she points out.
