Continuing the discussion from Stakeholder consultation assisted by AI:
Language models like ChatGPT can be used to undertake stakeholder analysis by providing a means to automatically generate and analyze text data related to stakeholders.
For example, policymakers can use the model to generate a list of potential stakeholders based on a description of the policy topic.
The model can also be used to analyze stakeholder comments or feedback from social media platforms, public forums, correspondence and submissions, identifying the most common concerns, interests, and perspectives.
Finally, policymakers can use the model to simulate stakeholder behavior or reactions to a proposed policy, allowing them to anticipate potential outcomes and adjust the policy accordingly.
