Abstract

Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI) is increasingly finding its way into creative problem-solving in group projects. However, existing research on the collaboration between GAI and humans in groups remains sparse. With this ongoing qualitative diary study, we explore human collaboration with GAI in creative group problem-solving. Our preliminary findings reveal two distinct collaboration forms and indicate that groups occasionally change between them. We identified a rather uncritical, passive use of GAI and a rather critical, active use of GAI. The change between these collaboration forms typically occurs in certain phases of creative group problem-solving and is influenced by diverse factors, including emotional reactions toward GAI. To extend and deepen our understanding, we plan to conduct additional qualitative diary studies, in-depth interviews, and ethnographic studies.

CREATIVE PROBLEM-SOLVING USING GENERATIVE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN GROUP PROJECTS

Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI) is increasingly finding its way into creative problem-solving in group projects. However, existing research on the collaboration between GAI and humans in groups remains sparse. With this ongoing qualitative diary study, we explore human collaboration with GAI in creative group problem-solving. Our preliminary findings reveal two distinct collaboration forms and indicate that groups occasionally change between them. We identified a rather uncritical, passive use of GAI and a rather critical, active use of GAI. The change between these collaboration forms typically occurs in certain phases of creative group problem-solving and is influenced by diverse factors, including emotional reactions toward GAI. To extend and deepen our understanding, we plan to conduct additional qualitative diary studies, in-depth interviews, and ethnographic studies.
