By detecting text produced by AI, OpenAI has created another piece of software to counter ChatGPT.
A software tool to detect language produced by artificial intelligence has been made available, according to a blog post published on Wednesday by OpenAI, the firm behind the well-known chatbot ChatGTP.
Since its release in November, ChatGPT, a free tool that generates writing in response to a prompt, has been quite popular, raising questions about copyright and plagiarism. This material can include articles, essays, jokes, and even poetry.
The AI classifier, a language model trained on a dataset of pairs of texts on the same subject produced by humans and by AI, tries to identify texts created by AI. The company said that it employs a range of suppliers to solve problems like automated disinformation campaigns and academic dishonesty.
OpenAI notes that the detection tool is very unreliable for texts under 1,000 characters and that AI-written material can be altered to deceive the classifier in its open beta version.
In order to collect input on whether imperfect tools like this one are helpful, OpenAI claimed that it was making the classifier available to the general public.
“We acknowledge that addressing the limitations and implications of AI-generated text classifiers in the classroom is equally important as recognising that detecting AI-written text has been a significant point of discussion among educators.”
Some of the biggest US school districts, including New York City, have banned ChatGPT since it launched in November and amassed widespread popularity among millions of users due to worries that kids will use the text generator to cheat or plagiarise.
GPTZeroX and other third-party detection programmes have been developed to assist schools in spotting AI-generated writing.
In addition to working on the detection of AI-generated language, OpenAI said it is talking with educators about ChatGPT’s strengths and weaknesses.
