AI chatbots like ChatGPT make it easy to summarize long articles, research papers, and books. If you are supposed to write summaries for school or work, remember that ChatGPT should be used to help you understand the topic, not to write the work for you. .

Whether you’re a student writing a research paper, want to learn more about a long article, or want to learn more about a complex subject, ChatGPT can simplify the process.
How ChatGPT Creates Summaries
materials needed: You need a device with internet connection, an OpenAI account, and URLs of articles, research papers, and book titles. This process takes about 1-3 minutes.
What are ChatGPT’s limitations?
If you’re using ChatGPT to summarize an article, book, or piece of research, please note that ChatGPT is not aware of events that occurred after 2021.
For example, let’s say you asked ChatGPT to tell you about Joe Biden’s political campaign to ban TikTok this year. In that case, the chatbot will say, “It’s unclear at this time what actions the Biden administration may take regarding TikTok in the future.”
Trying to get around this and providing ChatGPT with articles containing information from 2021 onwards can lead to hallucinations. Here, I asked the chatbot to summarize an article I wrote this week about a new app and made up a few details.
Can ChatGPT summarize PDFs?
Yes, uploading a PDF document to ChatGPT will summarize its content. However, the accuracy of the chatbot’s summary depends on the quality of the PDF. If the PDF is inaccessible or behind a paywall, ChatGPT may not be able to digest it.
Can ChatGPT summarize email threads?
Sorting. If you want to copy and paste all your emails, ChatGPT will summarize the thread content for you. It’s more helpful to skim through the email thread and contact ChatGPT for help crafting a response based on key points you know about the conversation.
