How To Spot AI-Generated Texts

Common signs of AI-generated text

 AI-generated texts are becoming increasingly sophisticated, but there are still some common signs that can help you spot them. Here are a few things to look for:

  • Repetitive sentence structures. AI-generated text often uses the same sentence structures over and over again. For example, you might see a lot of sentences that start with “By doing…” or “By making sure…”

  • Overly complex vocabulary. AI-generated text can sometimes use overly complex vocabulary that is not typically used in human-written text. For example, you might see words like “captious” or 

“bruit” where simpler words like “attention-calling” or “rumorous” would be more natural.

  • Lack of personal pronouns. AI-generated text often lacks personal pronouns, such as “I” and “you.” This is because AI models are not trained on the same social cues that humans are, and they don’t always understand the need to use personal pronouns to connect with the reader.

  • Lack of logical flow. AI-generated text can sometimes lack logical flow. For example, you might see sentences that don’t seem to connect to each other or paragraphs that don’t seem to have a clear topic.

  • Unnatural word choices. AI-generated text can

sometimes use words that are not typically used together or that don’t make sense in the context of the sentence. For example, you might see a sentence like “It is important to bestow charities in order to help the people in need”

How to use AI detection tools

There are a number of AI detection tools available online. These tools can analyze a text for signs of AI-generation, such as the use of repetitive language or unnatural word choices.

Some popular AI detection tools are:

  • ai Detector
  • GPTZero
  • CopyLeaks AI Detector

How to use your own knowledge to detect AI-generated text

Even if you don’t have access to an AI detection tool, you can still use your own knowledge to spot AI-generated text. Some of the things you can pay attention to in order to figure out whether a text is AI-generated or not are:

  • The text sounding too perfect. AI-generated text often lacks the natural flaws and inconsistencies that are found in human-written text. For example, you might see a text that is perfectly grammatically correct and uses a wide range of vocabulary, but it still doesn’t sound quite right.

  • The text not making much sense. AI-generated text can sometimes produce nonsensical sentences or 

paragraphs. For example, you might see a sentence like “The cat ran across the street with a feeling of sadness.” This sentence doesn’t make sense because cats don’t feel sadness.

  • The text not fitting the author’s usual style of writing. If you know the author’s writing style, you can compare it to the text in question to see if it’s a match. For example, if the author typically writes in a very informal style, but the text in question is very formal, then it’s likely that the text is AI-generated.
  • The text including faulty information. AI models are not always perfect at fact-checking, so you may find faulty information in AI-generated text. For example, you might see a text that claims that the Earth is flat.
  • The text not having an actual purpose. AI-generated text is often created for a specific purpose, such as marketing or informing the reader on a topic. If you can’t figure out the purpose of the text, then it’s likely that it’s AI-generated.

It should always be kept in mind that even though AI can be helpful in many ways, AI-generated content can be harmful to both the content creator and the reader if used excessively or wrongly due to many reasons. For this reason, make sure that you and your team use AI tools cautiously.
