Since OpenAI first launched ChatGPT in November 2022, there have been concerns surrounding plagiarism. These revolve mostly around copyright and intellectual property but also focus on the consequences of propagating errors in serious fields, such as in academic writing. This interesting news came to us from IEEE Spectrum in their article, “Machine-Learning Tool Easily Spots ChatGPT’s Writing.

In response to these concerns, a team of researchers from the University of Kansas has developed a tool to weed out artificial intelligence (AI)-generated academic writing and it has over 99 percent accuracy.

Does this mean AI is policing AI? The technology for generating text has advanced significantly, and it can sometimes be challenging to differentiate between AI-generated and human-generated text, particularly with more sophisticated AI models.

There are certain patterns or characteristics that may indicate the text has been generated by an AI, but it’s important to note that these characteristics are not definitive proof of AI-generated text, as skilled human writers can also exhibit some of these patterns intentionally or unintentionally.
