ChatGPT is all the rage, but it’s not popular with everyone, especially those who have to spot when it’s being used.
OpenAI’s AI-powered automated chatbot, ChatGPT, has taken the internet by storm, but not without creating a few problems along the way. With writers, coders, marketers, and seemingly everyone in between using ChatGPT to generate content, businesses around the world are watching a tsunami of AI-generated content.
With issues of plagiarism and stolen content constantly swirling around ChatGPT and its release, OpenAI has now released a new GPT-Classifier, a tool designed to detect and reveal whether the text you are reading was the work of ChatGPT or the work of ChatGPT. one of his other GPT tools.
OpenAI launches GPT-Classifier to help verify AI-written text
The announcement of OpenAI comes as the scrutiny of AI writing and AI-generated text intensifies and companies integrate ChatGPT output.
The new GPT-Classifier attempts to determine whether a given text was written by a human or the work of an AI generator. While ChatGPT and other GPT models are largely trained on all kinds of text input, the GPT-Classifier tool is “honed on a data set of human-written and human-written text pairs. IA on the same topic”.
So instead of sucking up information and recreating its best approximation, the GPT classifier attempts to compare similarities between known human text and known AI text to find discrepancies that reveal the source author.
GPT-Classifier detection is currently limited
While the idea of easily spotting AI-generated text will be music to editors and educators’ ears, OpenAI warned that its “classifier is not entirely reliable.”
Currently, GPT-Classifier “correctly identifies 26% of AI-written text” while labeling 9% of human text as AI-written. OpenAI also notes that the tool’s accuracy “generally improves as the length of input text increases.”
A quick test of the GPT-Classifier spotted a human-generated example and marked it “very unlikely to be AI-generated”, and also correctly stated that a ChatGPT-generated snippet on issues USB was “maybe AI generated”.
ChatGPT detection request is high
Even with the limitations of the GPT-Classifier, the demand for reliable ChatGPT detection is likely to see many turn to this tool. OpenAI’s commitment to creating and releasing a free GPT detection tool is important because as more students, writers, programmers, and others use AI text-generating tools , understanding and detecting this input will become vital.
For now, although GPT-Classifier is up and running and available for testing, its labeling is best taken with a pinch of salt.
