It is important to check with your lecturer if the use of AI is permitted for any assignment

If your lecturer premits the use of AI for an assignment then you can use generative AI to assist with your research provided that you are careful to maintain academic integrity and are using AI tools to help you think and understand. You will need to give a full account of how you have used AI and a copy of original AI text in your appendices. Using AI to create content or aid which is not attributed is academic plagiarism 
NB: Any information given through generative AI tools must be checked and verified with credible sources as the information provided by AI may be incorrect, also any references provided though AI are lightly to be incorrect
