I don’t think that is possible to be sure that about the generalizability of studies using “cutting edge AI” unless the methods used are replicable and open to falsifiability. This is a general point about AI methods and not specific to this application. It is a caveat which I felt worth mentioning in section 2 but I don’t think it should stand in the way of approving the data request.

Recommendation for this data request: Approve
