Undetectable AI, an AI re-writer crafted by a team of machine learning PhDs and fintech hotshots, has students and bloggers popping champagne as they fool AI-generated content detectors.
Meanwhile, some teachers are pulling their hair out over what they assert is a ‘high-tech cheating tool’.
The platform claims to rewrite and ‘humanize’ AI-generated text, making it undetectable to plagiarism and AI detectors like Turnitin.
The sneaky tool is touted as “the best way to remove all traces of AI detection” and is designed to ‘circumvent AI content detectors’ according to its website.
Advancements in machine learning and artificial intelligence generate tons of hype, but some people find the idea of not being able to ‘spot-a-bot’ concerning.
Here’s an unbiased look at how one emerging software aiming to replicate human writing works and a note on its potential implications.
Overview: AI Text Rewriter That Passes Off As 100% Human Written
Undetectable AI offers a web app that feeds any text through advanced AI algorithms to rewrite it completely. The goal is bypassing AI detectors like originality, and its currently considered the best tool in its class.
Users first input an AI-written text/essay from ChatGPT or a similar AI writer, then Undetectable AI then analyzes the text and rewrites every sentence with new phrasing and word choices. But it keeps the original meaning and information intact.
The end result reads like natural human writing. Yet it avoids triggering plagiarism checkers and AI detection platforms like Turnitin, which are designed to catch predictive, plagiarised, and generative text.
“Users get a completely new paragraph in seconds that– when put through AI-content detectors, gets detected as human,” says CEO Christian Perry
In short, Undetectable AI claims to make AI content undetectable. This offers an advanced form of paraphrasing far beyond the capabilities of everyday people or the typical paraphrasing tools like Quillbot.
“Our tool is specifically designed to remove any possible traces of AI detection,” Explains Perry.
Sure, the fact that undetectable.ai has created an AI that perfectly replicates human writing styles is fascinating, but it could also be Alan Turing’s worst nightmare.
Let’s look closer at how it works.
The Technology Behind Undetectable AI
Undetectable AI utilizes a complex AI system known as a transformer paired with reinforcement learning algorithms.
Transformer AI architecture emerged in 2017 and now powers systems like ChatGPT. It excels at processing words and language. Reinforcement learning further helps Undetectable AI refine its paraphrasing skills through trial-and-error practice.
By training on vast datasets of text examples, the company develops an advanced capability for rewriting content in new ways that preserve the original meaning. This lets it effectively “launder” AI-generated text to evade plagiarism detectors.
The end result flows smoothly and exhibits creativity that mimics human intellect. Undetectable AI tries to add natural opinionated language, vary sentence structure, and incorporate unique details in the rewritten text.
Under the hood, the system breaks down attribute patterns in the input text. It then generates new combinations of attributes to form rewritten sentences with similar meanings.
Effectively the detection dodging tool works by reverse engineering the detection process, with some added steps.
Uses of Undetectable AI’s AI Text Rewriter
Undetectable AI aims to provide an advanced human-quality paraphrasing tool for people wanting to rewrite content ethically and efficiently.
Some potential use cases include:
⦁ Humanizing AI writing-assisted stories: Bloggers can humanize AI-assisted articles or rephrase quotes from interviews for articles.
⦁ Repurposing content: Bloggers can rewrite old articles on new topics for their site.
⦁ Improving content: People using AI-assisted tools can use Undetectable.ai to make their generative content read better.
⦁ Providing an AI detection bypass method to avoid potential penalties: Sites like google are allegedly smacking bloggers with spam penalties for using AI written content, Undetectable promises help prevent that.
But does the ability to evade school-sanctioned AI detectors like Winston or Turnitin make it sound appealing for questionable use by students?
Though Undetectable AI prohibits cheating, users could easily use it to sneakily pass off GPT generated essays as their own.
“This could be great for turning my ChatGPT papers into something my teachers can’t detect,” a student named Jaque from Ohio State University tells me.
The OSU student explains that “Teachers are using programs to check if your content is AI or not,” and cautions that sometimes, “they falsely accuse other students of using ChatGPT.”
Undetectable.ai CEO Christian Perry and CTO Bars Juhasz both adamantly agree that “academic misconduct is strictly prohibited,” meaning students caught using the site could find themselves clobbered by a ban hammer.
Ironically, there is a fine-tuned AI detector on the undetectable.ai website, which is available for free, and it’s been cited as one of the best.
Implications and Challenges of Undetectable AI
Undetectable AI represents a new frontier in AI capabilities. Its advanced paraphrasing and ‘text humanizing’ skills provide tantalizing possibilities to redistribute, improve, or obscure bot-made content.
However, the opportunity to disguise AI writing as a human could pose risks of misuse for plagiarism and disinformation. Critics argue advanced paraphrasing tech could make detecting automation abuses much harder.
“Its way more poweful than Quillbot, it seems to be more than just a paraphraser,” warns Prof. Seigreid S., a California-based literary professor says he tested the Undetectable software out and was shocked it bypassed the fancy tools he uses for detecting AI-generated content.
Despite Professor Seigreid’s concerns, he admits that the ChatGPT detection tools he uses are inaccurate sometimes, and he clarifies that “nothing can officially be done” if students turn in homework that flags as AI according to the policy at the university he teaches at.
Still, Undetectable offers an early demonstration of how quickly AI text generation is progressing. Tools like this raise complex questions for the society around information ethics and plagiarism. The space will continue rapidly evolving in the coming years.
While new boundary-pushing bots like Undetectable.ai spark fresh debates, they highlight AI’s accelerating capabilities for processing language. This emerging technology holds significance for a wide range of industries where sophisticated text analysis and generation are valuable.
