What’s the internet without written content? From blogs and newsletters to something as simple as a product description or a Twitter bio, everything comes down to the written word.
But with the abundance of AI content generation tools, the question arises– who’s writing?
AI content writers are great. Especially for professionals and brands who find it tough to find inspiration and produce enough content. AI writers are capable of generating anything from a caption to a full blog post within minutes while also incorporating tone and style needs, if any. When you think of it this way, there seems to be no problem with using AI to generate content.
But there is.
Employers and publishers can rightfully feel the need to know that the content they are receiving from their writers is written by them or generated through AI, because while AI can drive creativity, it also stands responsible as the reason why content writers may choose to take shortcuts.
Moreover, concealed within this initial rush of AI excitement are glimpses of plagiarism, deep fakes, inaccuracies, copyright violations, intensified biases, and even simple gibberish.
This is where AI detection tools come into place. These tools are capable of scanning and analysing whether a certain piece of content was written by AI software or a human writer, irrespective of the platform used.
Let’s look at 3 top-performing AI content detection tools available online:
Originality.AI is a software that to works by analysing the structure and language of any given text on the Internet. It employs machine learning technologies along with advanced linguistic analysis techniques to accomplish the task of identify pieces of content as written by AI software or human writer.
It comes with a feature called team management where each member of a team is allowed to create an account to scan their own content for plagiarism and a inputs before submitting. It also has a full site scan feature that allows you to scan an entire website for plagiarism and AI content by simply entering the URL.
Originality.AI is priced in terms of credit where one credit that goes for 0.1 dollars let’s you scan up to 100 words.
2. GPT Zero
Still in testing GPT Zero stands to be a revolutionary tool for the education industry. Developed by Princeton University computer science student Edward Tian gpt zero provides predictions on specific sentences as well as entire documents.
It requires the user to enter text in the space provided and yields statistical score based on perplexity and burstiness, with a final declaration of the likelihood the text is either AI or human generated.
3. Content at Scale AI detector
Content at scale works as both an AI content generator as well as AI content detector. The detector analysis thousands of texts available online to identify the ones that have a similar style and context as yours.
The platform also offers a plagiarism scanning feature to avoid using copied content. The platform charges users per word, ranging from $0.01 to $0.018.
It is important to understand that these AI detector models are not completely accurate and are prone to providing false positive results. They usually offer around 90% of accuracy in detecting AI content, so one must use these tools with a pinch of salt.
In such scenarios, one can always rely on gut instinct. AI generated content is usually dry and over saturated with facts, follows a repetitive pattern, has awkward word choices as well as abrupt transitions within a piece of text.
Moreover, since AI content generators are trained through machine learning, they are incapable of producing any original and new approach to ideas. The content generated also always lacks personal experiences and insights.
So if this sounds like a piece of text you are currently reading then chances are that it was generated through AI.
