I suspect my content is AI generated
Last updated September 15, 2023
While we use AI Content Detection tools to help prevent AI generated content coming your way, unfortunately detection tools available in the market have yet to have a high rate of accuracy in detecting AI content.
Popular tools such as Originality AI, ZeroGPT, etc. will not with 100% certainty provide you with an accurate result on if the content is AI generated. Our sampling of Draft content has shown even content generated before OpenAI and other LLMs were accessible have been flagged as AI generated.
OpenAI has also published a FAQ where they've outlined AI detection isn't possible:
Do AI detectors work?
- In short, no. While some (including OpenAI) have released tools that purport to detect AI-generated content, none of these have proven to reliably distinguish between AI-generated and human-generated content.
- Additionally, ChatGPT has no “knowledge” of what content could be AI-generated. It will sometimes make up responses to questions like “did you write this [essay]?” or “could this have been written by AI?” These responses are random and have no basis in fact.
- To elaborate on our research into the shortcomings of detectors, one of our key findings was that these tools sometimes suggest that human-written content was generated by AI. - When we at OpenAI tried to train an AI-generated content detector, we found that it labeled human-written text like Shakespeare and the Declaration of Independence as AI-generated. - There were also indications that it could disproportionately impact students who had learned or were learning English as a second language and students whose writing was particularly formulaic or concise.
- Even if these tools could accurately identify AI-generated content (which they cannot yet), students can make small edits to evade detection.
We would ask that you work with the writer to revise the content piece if needed to help it achieve the desired expectation you're looking for and not solely focus on whether it is AI generated or not. After all, Google has come out and said useful and valuable content is what it looks for, AI generated or not.
