Artificial intelligence (AI) has transformed conventional teaching and research methods and opened new ways of learning. AI software revolutionized traditional teaching ways and research techniques. AI tools facilitate greater engagement with students during lectures. Further,  academicians are increasingly incorporating AI tools into their research activities. The rising trend of adopting AI apps in academic settings brings the need to assess the use of AI among academicians. Assessment of the utilization of AI tools is significant to understand potential benefits and challenges.
