Some commonly asked questions about AI detectors

  • What is a GPT detector?
    A GPT detector is a tool that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to detect the presence of GPT-3 or ChatGPT in content.
  • AI-generated content is tough for most humans to detect, especially now that AI tools are getting more advanced. SciSpace’s AI detector takes a multi-model approach to consider various characteristics and judges how much of the content is AI-written.
  • A Percentage Score is basically the number of sentences in the entire PDF which are marked AI. For example, if a PDF has 100 lines, out of which 23 turn out to be AI written, the percentage would be 23%.
  • SciSpace’s AI Detector gives a likelihood of AI presence in the text. After our analysis, it should be an obligation to further investigate the analyzed text before the user draws conclusions. Particularly those that have consequences.
  • Yes. SciSpace’s AI detector also functions as a ChatGPT detector, while predicting text from Jasper, and other AI writing tools with an accuracy of 98%.
  • For now, SciSpace’s AI detector only works for English text. However, we might release compatibility with multiple languages in the future.
  • As of now, yes. SciSpace’s AI detector is completely free to use — both in terms of cost and from ads. You can work distraction-free and uninterrupted.
  • Now that educators are keeping an eye out for AI writing in essays and papers, AI detectors can help students ensure originality in their writing and avoid getting poor grades — or worse, rejection.
  • A professor can use an AI detector to prevent their students from completely relying on AI to do the work. SciSpace’s AI detector, in particular, can be helpful as it excels in scientific text and allows users to upload PDFs.
  • Remember when GPT-3 wrote an academic paper that was subsequently submitted to a journal? Journals can have an easier time detecting such AI-generated text by using our AI detector.
  • Search engines are penalizing AI-written content these days. So, instead of taking a chance in their career, writers can detect AI, edit accordingly, and publish original work.
  • No, SciSpace only stores the generated report in "My Scans" section. These PDFs, however, do not get indexed or saved for future checks.
