Impacts of Corruption, Access to Finance, Productivity in 27 Transition Economies, was one of over 50 advanced research posters with abstract presentations at Fusion Building, Bournemouth University Conference on 29 November 2023, Fernbarrow, Bournemouth Poole Dorset UK.
The author is now honoured that this poster with abstract appears internationally on research gate within the works of leading international professor on successes and failures of transition economics, featured in the research lab of her AFE Advisor, Director, Professor Dr Jens Hölscher (he has over 142 multi-media articles listed) and on the author’s own research gate pages.

The poster exhibition was then followed by the conference keynote talk (by expert, Dr Gelareh Roushan, Head Of Centre for FLIE and Associate Professor at Bournemouth University) discussing the profound implications of ‘GEN AI and ChatGPT opportunities and realities for research.’
The debates and ethical considerations on Gen AI seem to be rising with differing viewpoints and experiences, some conceding at the BU conference that the simplicity and accessibility of Gen AI and ChatGPT, means it is rapidly growing at speed, likely to be found in everyday use amongst a number of researchers and general public to make quick connections, speeding up workload processes and saving time, as hinted at during the fastmoving fascinating compelling keynote lecture speech at Bournemouth University. The lecture theatre was at full capacity, with over a hundred attendees. We are all sure that we will hear more on the impact of Gen AI from Dr Gelareh Roushan, Bournemouth University.

The emerging pivotal role of Eastern Europe with corruption, access to finance, productivity matters within the greater context of Western Europe, US and world.
The poster author, Fiona Vidler, her ‘personal research experience as a non-expert’ viewpoint on AI is that she had completed writing and reviewing research pages to date on over 350 academic worldwide references without AI, before AI fully emerged in news headlines in 2023, where some specific papers relevant to Eastern Europe were not even sourced in automatic electronic media searches let alone AI – a rationale for advancing knowledge to fill gaps. So, she feels personally ‘authentic’ in that she has avoided the debated emerging conscious or subconscious AI biases, influences, searches on internet, academic limitations, ethical, percentage of AI inaccuracies or ‘virtual seeming truths’ within the current implications of AI. In future, she feels now from a researcher, writer and publisher viewpoint, that there is the need to considerations of responsible use of AI, otherwise objective research beyond perceptions with meaningful research design (a theme of her own research) and virtual subjective perceptions of reality could blur.
